Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrificesGod is pleased.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
This is the day which the hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
