For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures
He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.”
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed–a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty.
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me…
He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters…
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
“Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.”
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and He will come near to you.
I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders.
We say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Great peace have they who love Your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
