Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
For You, Lord, are good and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.
Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You!
Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.
Forever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
But Jesus answered him saying, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'"
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand."
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
"Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth."
"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned--
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!"
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-- meditate on these things.
1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
