Mt1:20But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
Mt1:24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
Mat3.2 and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near."
Mat3.8Produce fruit in keeping with repentance
Mat3.9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.
Mt5:5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Mt5:6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Mt5:7Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Mt5:8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Mt5:9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Mt5:10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Mt5:11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Mt5:12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Mt5:13"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
Mt5:14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
Mt5:15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
Mt5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Mt5:17"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
Mt5:18Truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
Mt5:19Anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven
Mt5:20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of Heaven
Mt5:21"You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.'
Mt5:22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, 'Raca,' is answerable to the Sanhedrin. And anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell
Mt5.28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart
Mt6.6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Mt6:20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal Mt6:25Therefore I tell you do no worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Mt6:33But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well
Mt7:1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
Mt7:13Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it
Mt7:14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Mt7:21Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only those who do the will of My Father who is in heaven
Mt7:24Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock
Mt7:26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
Mt10:7As you go, proclaim this message: The kingdom of heaven has come near
Mt10:8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received freely give.
Mt10.28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
Mt10.37 "Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves a son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Mt10.39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
Mt 12:36But I tell you that people will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
Mt13:41The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil
Mt15:3Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition Mt15:18But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these defile you
Mt15:19For out of your heart comes evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander
Mt18.4 Therefore, whoever takes a humble place—becoming like this child—is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Mt18.35 "This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive a brother or sister from your heart."
Mt19.17"Why do you ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments."
Mt19.18"Which ones ?" he inquired. Jesus replied, "'You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony,
Mt19.19honor your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.'
Mt19:28(Rev21:5) Jesus said to them,”Truly I tell you at the renewal of all things,when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne , you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Mt21:32For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
Mt22:37Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind
Mt22:38 This is the first and greatest command
Mt22:39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself
Mt22:40 All the law and the prophets hang on these two commands
Mt24:4 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you.
Mt24:6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
Mt24:13but whoever stands firm to the end will be saved
Mt24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Mt24:15 "So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation,' spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand—
Mt24:16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
Mt24:17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house.
Mt24:18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak.
Mt26:38 Then he said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me."
Mt26:41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
Mt26:46 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!"
Mt28:16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.
Mt28:7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."
Mt28:8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Mt28:10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."
Mt28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Mt28:20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Mk7:8You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions
Mk7:20He went on: "What comes out of you is what defiles you.
Mk7:21For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder,
Mk7:22adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.
Mk7:23All these evils come from inside and defile you."
Mk8:34Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
Mk8:35For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.
Mk9:7Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"
Mk9.25When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again."
Mk9:35Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all."
Mk10:19 You know the commandments: 'You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.'
Mk11:22”Have faith in God, “Jesus answered
Mk12:28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"
Mk12:29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
Mk12:30Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'
Mk12:31The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
Mk13:23 So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
Mk13:28 "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.
Mk13:29 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door.
Mk13:33 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
Mk13:34 It's like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with an assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
Mk13:35 "Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.
Mk13:36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping.
Mk13:37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!' "
Mk16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Mk16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Mk16:17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
Mk16:18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
Lk1:6Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commands and decrees blamelessly.
Lk1:51He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their
Lk1:74 to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear
Lk1:75in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
Lk3:8Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.
Lk3:13"Don't collect any more than you are required to," he told them.
Lk3:14Then some soldiers asked him, "And what should we do?"
He replied, "Don't extort money and don't accuse people falsely—be content with your pay."
Lk3:22and The Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: You are My Son, whom I love; with You I am well pleased”
Lk4:18"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,
Lk5:5 Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."
Lk5:10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon's partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now on you will fish for people."
Lk5:14Then Jesus ordered him, "Don't tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them."
Lk5:15 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses
Lk6:27"But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
Lk6:28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
Lk6:29If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt.
Lk6:30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.
Lk6:31Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Lk6:32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.
Lk6:33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.
Lk6:34And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full.
Lk6:35But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Lk6:36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
Lk6:37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Lk6:38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Lk6:40Students are not above their teacher, but all who are fully trained will be like their teacher.
Lk6:41"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in someone else's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
Lk6:42How can you say, 'Friend, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from the other person's eye.
Lk6:46"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?
Lk6:47As for those who come to me and hear my words and put them into practice, I will show you what they are like.
Lk6:48They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.
Lk6:49But those who hear my words and do not put them into practice are like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."
Lk8:14The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.
Lk8:15But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
Lk8:21He replied, "My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice."
Lk8:25"Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him."
Lk8:48Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace." LK8:50Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."
Lk9:1When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases,
Lk9:2and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
Lk9:3He told them: "Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt.
Lk9:4Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town.
Lk9:5If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them."
Lk9:13He replied, "You give them something to eat."
Lk9:23Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
Lk9:24For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.
Lk9:50"Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
Lk9:60Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
Lk10:3Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.
Lk10:4Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
Lk10:5"When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.'
Lk10:7Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for workers deserve their wages. Do not move around from house to house.
LK10:8"When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you.
LK10:9Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'
Lk10:10But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, Lk10:19I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy, nothing will harm you
Lk10:20However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
Lk10:27He answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and, ‘love your neighbor as yourself. “
Lk10:28"You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live."
Lk11:4Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. ' "
Lk11:9So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you
Lk11:10For everyone who asks receives; those who seek find; and to those who knock, the door will be opened.
Lk11:28He replied, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it."
Lk11:33None of you lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead you put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
Lk11:35See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness
Lk11:41But now as for what is inside you—be generous to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.
Lk11:42"Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.
Lk12:1Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Lk12:4"I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.
Lk12:5But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.
LK12:7Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Lk12:8"I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.
Lk12:9But whoever publicly disowns me will be disowned before the angels of God.
Lk12:11"When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,
Lk12:15Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions."
Lk12:22Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
Lk12:29And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it.
Lk12:31But seek His Kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well Lk12:32Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the Kingdom
Lk12:33Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
Lk12:35"Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning,
Lk12:42The Lord answered, "Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?
LK12:43It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns.
Lk12:44Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.
Lk13:6Then he told this parable: "A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any.
Lk13:7So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, 'For three years now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?'
Lk13:8" 'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it.
Lk13:9If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.' "
Lk13:24"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.
Lk13:33 In any case, I must press on today and tomorrow and the next day—for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!
Lk14:8"When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for a person more distinguished than you may have been invited.
Lk14:10But when you are invited, take the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, 'Friend, move up to a better place.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all the other guests.
LK14:11For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."
Lk14:12Then Jesus said to his host, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid.
Lk14:13But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,
Lk14:17At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, 'Come, for everything is now ready.'
Lk14:21"The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.'
Lk14:22" 'Sir,' the servant said, 'what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.'
Lk14:23"Then the master told his servant, 'Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.
Lk14:26"If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even life itself—such a person cannot be my disciple.
Lk14:27And whoever does not carry their cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple
Lk14:33In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be My disciple
Lk17:1Jesus said to his disciples: "Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.
Lk17:2 It would be better for you to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around your neck than for you to cause one of these little ones to stumble.
Lk17:3 So watch yourselves. "If a brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them.
Lk17:4 Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying 'I repent,' you must forgive them."
Lk17:10 So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "
Lk18:1Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
Lk18:7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?
Lk18:8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"
Lk18:16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Lk18:17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
Lk18:20You know the commandments: 'You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.' "
Lk18:21"All these I have kept since I was a boy," he said.
Lk18:22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
Lk19:12 He said: "A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return.
Lk19:13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.'
Lk19:14 "But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, 'We don't want this man to be our king.'
Lk19:15 "He was made king, however, and returned home. Then he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it.
Lk19:16 "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.'
Lk19:17 " 'Well done, my good servant!' his master replied. 'Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.'
Lk19:18 "The second came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned five more.'
Lk19:19 "His master answered, 'You take charge of five cities.'
Lk19:20 "Then another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth.
Lk19:21 I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.'
Lk19:22"His master replied, 'I will judge you by your own words, you wicked servant! You knew, did you, that I am a hard man, taking out what I did not put in, and reaping what I did not sow?
Lk19:23 Why then didn't you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?'
Lk19:24 "Then he said to those standing by, 'Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.'
Lk19:25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!'
Lk19:26 "He replied, 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.
Lk21:8He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them.
Lk21:14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.
Lk21:19 Stand firm, and you will win life.
Lk21:34 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap.
Lk21:36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."
Lk22:19And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body given for you, do this in remembrance of Me.”
Lk22:26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.
Lk22:32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
Lk24:49I am going to send you What My Father has promised, but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.
Jn1.23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.'
Jn3.7 You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.'
Jn3.21 But those who live by the truth come into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Jn5:14Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you."
Jn6:27Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On Him God the Father has placed His seal of approval Jn7:38Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.
Jn8:11No one sir she said. Then neither do I condemn you. Jesus declared. Go now and leave your life of sin
Jn8:12When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said,” I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life
Jn8:31To the Jews who had believed Him, Jesus said, “If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples
Jn8.44You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Jn10:17The reason My Father loves Me is that I lay down My life- only to take it up again Jn10:18No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from My Father
Jn12:26Whoever serves Me must follow Me; and where I am, My servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves Me
Jn12:49For I did not speak on My own, but The Father who sent Me commanded Me to say all that I have spoken
Jn12:50I know that His command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what The Father has told Me to say
Jn13:34A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another
Jn13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Jn14:1Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me
Jn14:12Very truly I tell you, all who have faith in Me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father
Jn14:15If you love Me keep My commands
Jn14:21Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me. Anyone who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love them and show Myself to them
Jn14:23Jesus replied, Anyone who loves Me will obey My teaching. My father will love them and we will come to them and make our home with them
Jn14:27Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. Jn14:31but He comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what My Father has commanded Me. Come now; let us leave.
Jn15:2He cuts off every branch in Me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful
Jn15:4Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me
Jn15:5I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing
Jn15:7If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you
Jn15:8This is to My Father’s Glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples
Jn15:9As the father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love Jn15:10If you keep My commands, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and remain in His love
Jn15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Jn15:13Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends Jn15:14You are My friends if you do what I command
Jn15:17This is My command: Love each other
Jn15:18If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first
Jn15:19If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own .As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
Jn15:20Remember what I told you: 'Servants are not greater than their master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.
Jn15:21They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.
Jn15:24If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.
Jn15:27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.
Jn16:33"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."
Jn18:11Jesus commanded Peter, Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given Me?
Jn20:17Jesus said”Do not hold on to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to My brothers and tell them ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.’”
Jn20:21Again Jesus said, peace be with you! As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you
Jn21.6He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
Jn21:15When they had finished eating, Jesus said to simon Peter, Simon son of John, do you love Me more than these? Yes Lord , he said, You know that I love you. Jesus said, feed My lambs
Jn21:16Again Jesus said, Simon son of john, do you love me? He answered, Yes, Lord, you know that I love You. Jesus said, take care of My sheep
Jn21:17The third time He said to him, Simon, son of John, do you love Me? Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, Do you love Me? He said, Lord, You know all things; You know that I love you. Jesus said, feed My sheep.
Lk21:36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man
Acts1:4 On one occasion, while He was eating with them, He gave them this command: ”Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for The Gift My Father promised, which you have heard Me speak about
Ac 9:6Now get up and go into the city, and you would be told what you must do Ac9:11The Lord told him “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying
Ac9:15But the Lord said to Ananias,”Go! This man is My chosen instrument to proclaim My Name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel
Ac 10:5Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter
Ac10:13Then a voice told him,”Get up, Peter. Kill and eat” Ac10:15The voice spoke to him a second time,”do not call anything impure that God has made clean” Ac10:20So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them.
Ac10:28He said to them: You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with Gentiles or visit them. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean
Ac10:32Send to yoppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea Ac10:33So I sent for you immediately, and it was good for you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us
Ac 10:42He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that He is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead
Ac13:40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:
Ac20:32 "Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
Act24:16So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and all people.
Ro1:7To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be His Holy people: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ
Ro1:5Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to faith and obedience for his name's sake.
Ro 1:17For 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.”
Ro1:21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Ro1:28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
Ro1:31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
Ro2.1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things.
Ro2.2Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth.
Ro2.3 So when you, a mere human, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment?
Ro2:7 to those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, He will give eternal life.
Ro2:8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
Ro2:10but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
Ro6:6For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin
Ro6:10The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
Ro6:11In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus
Ro6:12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires
Ro6:13Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to Him as an instrument of righteousness
Ro6:14For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace
Ro6:15What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means!
Ro6:16Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are always slaves of the one you obey- whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness
Ro6:17But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance
Ro6:18You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
Ro6:20When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness
Ro6:22But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reaps leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life
Ro7:6But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.
Ro7:8 But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of coveting. For apart from the law, sin was dead.
Ro7:9Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died.
Ro7:10I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death.
Ro7:11For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death.
Ro7:12So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.
Ro7:13Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! Nevertheless, in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it used what is good to bring about my death, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful.
Ro7:22For in my inner being I delight in God's law;
Ro7:23but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.
Ro7:25Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin
Ro8:2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death
Ro8:3For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful humanity to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in human flesh
Ro8:4in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit
Ro8:5Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires
Ro8:6The mind controlled by the sinful nature is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace
Ro8:9You, however, are not controlled by the sinful nature but are in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ
Ro8:10But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness
Ro8:12Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation- but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it
Ro8:13For if we live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
Ro8:25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Ro8:28And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose
Ro10:8But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:
Ro10:9If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Ro10:10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved
Ro11:18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
Ro11:20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.
Ro11:21For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
Ro11:22Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.
Ro12:1Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is true worship.
Ro12:2Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Ro12:6We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith;
Ro12:7if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach;
Ro12:8if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
Ro12:9Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good
Ro12:10Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Ro12:11Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord
Ro12:12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer
Ro12:13Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality
Ro12:14Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Ro12:15Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Ro12:16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not think you are superior.
Ro12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
Ro12:18If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Ro12:19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.
Ro12:20On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
Ro12:21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Ro13:1Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
Ro13:5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.
Ro13:7Give to everyone what you owe: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Ro13:8Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
Ro13:9The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not covet," and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
Ro13:10Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Ro13:11And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
Ro13:12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
Ro13:13Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.
Ro13:14Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
Ro14:1Accept those whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.
Ro14:3The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted that person.
Ro14:4Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To their own master they stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.
Ro14:8If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
Ro14:13Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.
Ro14:15If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother or sister for whom Christ died.
Ro14:16Therefore do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil.
Ro14:17For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit
Ro14.18because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.
Ro14.19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
Ro14.20 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.
Ro14.21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.
Ro14.22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed are those who do not condemn themselves by what they approve.
Ro15.1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
Ro15.2 We should all please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.
Ro15:6so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
Ro15.7Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Ro15.10 Again, it says, "Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people."
Ro15.11 And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; let all the peoples extol him."
Ro15.18 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done—
Ro16:17I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.
Ro16:19Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ send greetings.
Ro16:26but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to faith and obedience—
1Cor1.2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
1Cor1.29 so that no one may boast before him.
1Cor1.31Therefore, as it is written: "Let those who boast boast in the Lord."
1Cor2:5so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power
1Cor3:10By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.
1Cor 3:18Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become fools so that you may become wise 1Cor4:2Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful
1Cor4:5Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of people’s hearts. At that time each will receive their praise from God.
1Cor4:6Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written”. Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other.
1Cor5.7Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
1Cor5.8Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
1Cor5.9I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—
1Cor5.11But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with any who claim to be fellow believers but are sexually immoral or greedy, idolaters or slanderers, drunkards or swindlers. With such persons do not even eat.
1Cor5.13God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked person from among you."
1Cor6:9Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals
1Cor6.12 "I have the right to do anything," you say—but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"—but I will not be mastered by anything.
1Cor6.13You say, "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both." The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
1Cor6.15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
1Cor6.16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
1Cor6. 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
1Cor6.18Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins people commit are outside their bodies, but those who sin sexually sin against their own bodies.
1Cor6.19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
1Cor6.20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1Cor8.1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that "We all possess knowledge." But knowledge puffs up while love builds up.
1Cor8:3But whoever loves God is known by God
1Cor8.9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.
1Cor8.13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.
1Cor9.14 In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.
1Cor9.24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
1Cor10.6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.
1Cor10. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: "The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry."
1Cor10.8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.
1Cor10.9 We should not test Christ, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes.
1Cor10.10And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.
1Cor10.12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
1Cor10.14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.
1Cor10.20No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
1Cor10.21You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's table and the table of demons.
1Cor10.24 No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
1Cor10.25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,
1Cor10.27If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience.
1Cor10.28 But if someone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, both for the sake of the one who told you and for the sake of conscience.
1Cor10.31So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1Cor10.32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God—
1Cor10.33 even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
1Cor11.1Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
On Covering the Head in Worship
1Cor11.28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
1Cor11.31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment.
1Cor13:2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing
1Cor13:3If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing
1Cor13:4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1Cor13:5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong
1Cor13:6Love does not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth
1Cor13:7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1Cor13:8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away
1Cor13:13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1Cor14.1Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.
1Cor14. 13 For this reason those who speak in a tongue should pray that they may interpret what they say.
1Cor14.15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.
1Cor14.20Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.
1Cor14.26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.
1Cor14.27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret.
1Cor14.28 If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church; let them speak to themselves and to God.
1Cor14.29 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.
1Cor14.37 If any think they are prophets or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord's command.
1Cor14.38 Those who ignore this will themselves be ignored.
1Cor14.39 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.
1Cor14.40 But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.
1Cor15:58Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1Cor16:13Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong 1Cor16:14Do everything in love
2Cor2:14But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of Him everywhere
2Cor4:18So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2Cor 5:9So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
2Cor5:15And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again.
2Cor5:17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.
2Cor 5:18All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
2Cor5:19that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation
2Cor5:20We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God is making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: be reconciled to God
2Cor 6:1As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.
2Cor 6:2For He says “In the time of My favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you” I tell you now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
2Cor6:17Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you”.
2Cor6:14Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness.
2Cor7:1Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reference for God.
2Cor9:7Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver
2Cor10:5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Gal3.27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
Gal3.29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Gal5.6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
Eph1.1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To God's holy people in Ephesus,the faithful in Christ Jesus:
Eph1:4For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love
Eph2:10For we are Gods handywork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Eph2:15by setting aside in His flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in Himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace
Eph3:9and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.
Eph4:1As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received
Eph4:2Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Eph4:3Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace
Eph4:4There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called
Eph4:5one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
Eph4:6one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and all Eph4:12to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
Eph4:13until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ
Eph4:15Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the head, that is Christ
Eph4:16From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work
Eph4:17So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking
Eph4:18They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of their ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts
Eph4:19Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed
Eph4:20That, however, is not the way of life you learned
Eph4:21when you heard about Christ and were taught in Him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus
Eph4:22You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires
Eph4:23to be made new in the attitude of your minds
Eph4:24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness Eph4:25Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body
Eph4:26”In your anger do not sin ”:Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry
Eph4:27and do not give the devil a foothold.
Eph4:28Those who have been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
Eph4:29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen
Eph4:30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption
Eph4:24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness
Eph4:31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice Eph4:32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving, each other, just as in Christ God forgave you
Eph5:1Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children
Eph5:2And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God
Eph5:3But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for the Lord’s people.
Eph5:4Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving
Eph5:5For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person-such a person is an idolater- has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God
Eph5:6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient
Eph5:7Therefore do not be partners with them.
Eph5:8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
Eph5:9(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
Eph5:10and find out what pleases the Lord
Eph5:11Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them
Eph5:12It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret
Eph5:14This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Eph5:15Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but as wise,
Eph5:16making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Eph5:15Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but as wise,
Eph5:17Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is
Eph5:18Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,
Eph5:19Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord
Eph5:20Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ
Eph5:21Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ
Eph5:22Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord
Eph5:23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which He is the savior
Eph5:24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything
Eph5:25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her
Eph5:26to make her Holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word
Eph5:27and to present her to Himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but Holy and blameless
Eph5:28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself
Eph5:29After all, people have never hated their own bodies, but they feed and care for them, just as Christ does the church
Eph5:30For we are members of His body
Eph5:31For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh
Eph5:33However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband
Eph6:1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Eph6:2”Honor your father and mother”- which is the first commandment with a promise-
Eph6:4Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord
Eph6:5Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ
Eph6:6Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart
Phi 4:7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
Ph6:7Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people,
Eph6:9And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that He who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with Him.
Eph6:10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power
Eph6:11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes
Eph6:12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms
Eph6:13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand
Eph6:14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
Eph6:15and with your feet filled with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace
Eph6:16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Eph6:17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.
Eph6:18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people
Eph6:19Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel
Phi1.9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,
Phi2.15 so that you may become blameless and pure, "children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation." Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky
Phi 4:6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Phi4:8Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things
Phi 4:9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you
Col1:10So that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God
Col1:11being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience
Col 1:12and giving joyful thanks to the Father who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His people in the kingdom of light
Col1:23If you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant
Col2:6So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him,
Col 2:7rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness
Col2:8See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ
Col2:6So then, just as you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him,
Col 2:7rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness
Col2.11In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your sinful nature was put off when you were circumcised by Christ,
Col2:18Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such people also go into great detail about what they have seen, and their unspiritual minds puff them up with idle notions
Col3:1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God
Col 3:2Set your minds on things above not on earthly things.
Col 3:3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God
Col 3:4When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in Glory
Col3:5Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry
Col3:7You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived
Col3:8But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander and filthy language from your lips
Col3:9Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices
Col3:10and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its creator
Col3:12Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience
Col3:14And over all these virtues put on love, which bind them all together in perfect unity
Col 3:15Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful
Col3:16Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts
Col 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him
Co3:23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters
Col3:24since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving
Col4:2Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Col4.5Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
Col4:6Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know to answer everyone.
Col4.17 Tell Archippus: "See to it that you complete the work you have received in the Lord."
1Thes1.10and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
1Thes2.10 You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed.
1Thes2.12encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
1Thes4.1 As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.
1Thes4.2For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.
1Thes4.4 that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable,
1Thes 4:7For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
1The4:8 Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
1Thes4.11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
1Thes4.12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
1Thes5.4 But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
1Thes5.5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
1Thes5.6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.
1Thes5.8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
1Thes5.11Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1Thes5.13Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.
1Thes5.14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
1Thes5.15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.
1Thes 5:17pray continually
1Thes5:18Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
1Thes5:21but test them all; hold on to what is good
1Thes5:23May God Himsel, the God of peace sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
2The1:8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
2The2:1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters,
2The2:2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come.
2The2:10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved
2The2:15So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter 2The3:4We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command.
2The3:6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching [f] you received from us.
2The3:7For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you,
2The3:10For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "Anyone who is unwilling to work shall not eat."
2The3:11We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.
2The3:12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat.
2The3:13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.
2The3:14Take special note of those who do not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed.
2Thes3:15Yet do not regard them as enemies, but warn them as fellow believers.
1Tim1.18Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well,
1Tim1.19holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.
1Tim2.2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1Tim4:7Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives tales; rather, train yourself to be Godly
1Tim4:8For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come
1Tim4.11 Command and teach these things.
1Tim4.12 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.
1Tim4.13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.
1Tim4.14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
1Tim4.15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.
1Tim4.16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
1Tim5.22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
1Tim6.11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
1Tim6:12Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
2Tim1:9who has saved us and called us to a holy life. -not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time
2Tim1.14Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
2Tim2:1You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2Tim2:2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
2Tim2:3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
2Tim2:4 No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs; rather, they try to please their commanding officer.
2Tim2:5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor's crown except by competing according to the rules.
2Tim2:6The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.
2Tim2:7Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
2Tim2:8Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel,
2Tim2:9for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God's word is not chained.
2Tim2:10Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
2Tim2:11Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him;
2Tim2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
2Tim2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
2Tim2.14 Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.
2Tim2.15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2Tim2.16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
2Tim2:19Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."
2Tim2:20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for disposal of refuse.
2Tim2:21Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
2Tim2.22Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2Tim2:23Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
2Tim2:24And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.
2Tim2:25Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,
2Tim 4:1In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge:
2Tim4:2Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
2Tim4:5But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
2Tim4:7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Tit1:1Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness
Tit2:12It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
Tit2:14Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good
Tit3.1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good,
Tit3.2to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.
Tit3.3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.
Tit3.4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
Tit3.5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
Tit3.6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Tit3.7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Tit3.8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.
Tit3.9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.
Tit3.10 Warn divisive people once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.
Tit3.11 You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.
Tit3.14 Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.
Heb3:14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold firmly till the end our original conviction
Heb10:23Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He Who promised is faithful.
Heb12:14Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy, without holiness no one will see the Lord
Heb12:25See to it that you do not refuse Him Who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from Him Who warns us from heaven
Heb12:28Therefore since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reference and awe
Heb13:5Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Heb13:6So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can human beings do to me?’
Heb13.7Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
Heb13.9Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by the eating of ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who observe such rituals.
Heb13:15Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that openly profess His Name
Ja1:4Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything
Ja1.5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Ja1.6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
Ja1.9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.
Ja1.10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.
Ja1:12Blessed are those who persevere under trial, because when they have stood the test they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him
Ja1.19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
Ja1.20because our anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
Ja1.21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Ja1.22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Ja1.25 But those who look intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continue in it—not forgetting what they have heard but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
Ja1.26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.
