The payment for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found only in Christ Yeshua our Lord (Romans 6:23)
Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him (James 1:12)
Finally, receive your power from the Lord and from his mighty strength. Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies (Ephesians 6:10-11)
Blessed is the person who trusts Yahweh.
Yahweh will be his confidence.
He will be like a tree that is planted by water.
It will send its roots down to a stream.
It will not be afraid in the heat of summer.
Its leaves will turn green.
It will not be anxious during droughts.
It will not stop producing fruit (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
Desire God’s pure word as newborn babies desire milk. Then you will grow in your salvation. Certainly you have tasted that the Lord is good! (I Peter 2:2-3)
The fruit of the Spirit, the result of His presence within us, is unselfish concern for others, joy, inner peace, patience (not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites.
If we claim to live by the Holy Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage—our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25)
Forever, O Lord,
Your word is settled in heaven;
standing firm and unchangeable (Psalm 119:89)
