“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law
he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth
its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper”

we are being renewed day by day.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go”
6 The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? 7 The LORD is with me;
he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies. 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in humans.

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies
as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 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.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up
meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more
as you see the Day approaching.
43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
10 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.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them.
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone;
I will make him a helper suitable for him”
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female;
for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife,
as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church
is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman,
and God is the head of Christ.
Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and
do not be embittered against them. Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this
is well-pleasing to the Lord. Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.
A gracious woman attains honor, And ruthless men attain riches.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute.
The steps of a man are established by the Lord, And He delights in his way.
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, And the wealth of the sinner
is stored up for the righteous.
Man’s steps are ordained by the Lord, How then can man understand his way?
The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; And devout men are taken away,
while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil.
‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see visions,
And your old men shall dream dreams; Even on My bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days
pour forth of My Spirit And they shall prophesy.
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,
whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites,
in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong
or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess
to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

who gave himself as a ransom for all men— the testimony given in its proper time.

your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

in love, and in endurance.

and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.
