I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Nevertheless, the righteous will hold to their ways, and those with clean hands will grow stronger.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Emmanuel.
This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave His life for us. So we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters.
