Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control. Against such things there is no law.
Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.
Praise the LORD. His love to me was wonderful when my city was attacked. In my distress, I said, “God cannot see me!” But you heard my prayer when I cried out to you for help. Love the LORD, all you who belong to him. The LORD protects those who truly believe, but he punishes the proud as much as they have sinned. All you who put your hope in the LORD be strong and brave.
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God’s glory. The free gift of God’s grace makes all of us right with him. Christ Jesus paid the price to set us free.
