For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”
Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.
