For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.
Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, according to Christ Jesus.
Yet Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we all are the work of your hands.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, in view of the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship.
Look, I’m sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock where I seek refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.
So don’t throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.
Humility, the fear of the Lord, results in wealth, honor, and life.
Pay careful attention, then, to how you live—not as unwise people but as wise—making the most of the time, because the days are evil.
