This is what I command you: love one another.
2 Peter 1:5-7
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
Jerusalem – the mountains surround her. And the Lord surrounds His people, both now and forever.
The Lord values those who fear Him, those who put their faith in His faithful love.
Look up and see: who created these? He brings out the starry host by number; He calls all of them by name. Because of His great power and strength, not one of them is missing.
Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Send Your light and Your truth; let them lead me. Let them bring me to Your holy mountain, to Your dwelling place.
My feet have followed in His tracks; I have kept to His way and not turned aside.
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength.
But You, Lord, don’t be far away. My strength, come quickly to help me.
Then you will go safely on your way; your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; you will lie down, and your sleep will be pleasant.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” – this is the Lord’s declaration – “plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: “Who should I send? Who will go for Us?” I said: “Here I am. Send me.”
2 Thessalonians 3:13
Brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.
Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness – without it no one will see the Lord.
2 Timothy 4:5
But as for you, keep a clear head about everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light. What you hear in a whisper, proclaim on the housetops.
Where were you when I established the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen.
And you were once alienated and hostile in mind because of your evil actions. But now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him – if indeed you remain grounded and steadfast in the faith, and are not shifted away from the hope of the gospel that you heard.
You Yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in your records?
Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
My dearly loved brothers, understand this: everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger, for man’s anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness.
Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not conceal my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and You took away the guilt of my sin.
The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him.
Song of Songs 4:7
You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.
I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.
So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
Do you not know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.
Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many dwelling places; if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you.
