Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
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.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
