But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
The is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
