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.
But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’ friends.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
