So that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
. . .but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God . . .
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life.
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
“Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection.
