The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. – My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
If God be for us, who can be against us? – The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? – Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. – We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Arise therefore, and be doing, and the Lord be with thee.
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? – The Lord sware and will not repent.
God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us. – Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. – Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. – All the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?
Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. … Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. – Whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
To do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. – God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey.
All these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. … The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. – It is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. – Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Who is sufficient for these things? – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: … and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea.
Though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! … I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. – My word … shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please. – So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. – Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world. … At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me. – When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. – Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. – I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore. – I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. – My peace I give unto you.
My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, … but now is my kingdom not from hence. – Expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. – Thou … hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. – I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: … and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. – Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. – Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead.
The promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
The just shall live by faith. – Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised). – Our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. – With God nothing shall be impossible. … And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. – Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions? – I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go.
Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits. – I am come into my garden. – I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain.
Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. – I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. – Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – The world seeth me no more; but ye see me.
