Habakkuk 1 1 The pronouncement which Habakkuk the prophet saw: 2 How long, Lord, have I called for help, And You do not hear?

Yes, devastation and violence are before me; Strife exists and contention arises. 4 Therefore the Law is ignored, And […]

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 14 Do not be mismatched with unbelievers; for what do righteousness and lawlessness share together, or what does light have in common with darkness? 15 Or what harmony does Christ have with Belial, or what does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 Or what agreement does the temple of God have with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell among […]

Displaying God’s Glory in the Church

2 Corinthians 3:18-4:6 18 But we all, with unveiled faces, looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. 4 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, 2 but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not […]

Romans 6:1-5 6 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 Far from it!

Acts 2:45-47 45 and they (A)would sell their property and possessions and share them with all, to the extent that anyone had need. 46 (B)Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and (C)breaking bread [a]from house to house, they were taking their [b]meals together with gladness and [c]sincerity of heart, 47 praising God and (D)having favor with all the people.

Hebrews 8:5-13 5 who serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, just as Moses was warned by God when he was about to erect the tabernacle; for, “See,” He says, “that you make all things by the pattern which was shown to you on the mountain.” 6 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, to the extent that He is also the mediator of a […]

Why Christmas? To Save Sinners

1 Timothy 1:3-17 3 Just as I urged you [a]upon my departure for (A)Macedonia, to remain on at (B)Ephesus so that you would instruct certain people not to (C)teach strange doctrines, 4 nor to [b]pay attention to (D)myths and endless (E)genealogies, which give rise to useless (F)speculation rather than (G)advance [c]the plan of God, which is by faith, so I urge you now. 5 But the goal of our [d](H)instruction is love (I)from […]

1 John 3:1-8 3 See [a](A)how great a love the Father has given us, that we would be called (B)children of God; and in fact we are. For this reason the world does not know us: because (C)it did not know Him. 2 (D)Beloved, now we are (E)children of God, and (F)it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when […]

Matthew 1:18-23 18 Now the birth of Jesus the [a]Messiah was as follows: when His (A)mother Mary had been [b]betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was (B)found to be pregnant by the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, since he was a righteous man and did not want to disgrace her, planned to [c](C)send her away secretly. 20 But when he had […]

Jonah 4 4 But it greatly displeased Jonah, and he became (A)angry. 2 Then he (B)prayed to the Lord and said, “Please Lord, was this not [a]what I said when I was still in my own country? Therefore in anticipation of this I (C)fled to Tarshish, since I knew that You are a (D)gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in mercy, and One who relents of disaster. 3 So […]
