I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
Do everything in love.
For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
“Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”
Stop doing wrong,
learn to do right!
encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.
A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Since You are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of Your name lead and guide me.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.
