“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
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.
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
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.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
