He 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,
I 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.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sinsand live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
I keep my eyes always on the .
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnessesin Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
You are my refuge and my shield;
But the said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the looketh on the heart.

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,
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
