See to it that no one takes you
captive through philosophy and
empty deception, according to
the tradition of men, according
to the elementary principles of
the world, rather than according
to Christ (Colossians 2:8 New
International Version).
Romans 13:8-10
no debt remain outstanding, except the
continuing debt to love one another, for
whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9The
commandments, "You shall not commit
adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not
steal," "You shall not covet," and whatever
other command there may be, are summed up
in this one command: "Love your neighbor as
yourself." 10Love does no harm to a neighbor.
Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (NIV)
1 Corinthians 13:1-13
I speak in the tongues of mortals and of
angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy
gong or a clanging cymbal. 2And if I have
prophetic powers, and understand all
mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have
all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do
not have love, I am nothing. (NIV)
John 16
13 But
when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he
will guide you into all the truth.
23 In
that day you will no longer ask me
anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will
give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until
now you have not asked for anything in my
name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy
will be complete. (NIV)
Matthew 5 “The Beatitudes”
are those who hunger and thirst for
righteousness, for they will be filled.
(Matthew 5:6 NIV)
Ecclesiastes 9:9-10
life with your wife, whom you love, all
the days of this meaningless life that God has
given you under the sun – all your meaningless
days. For this is your lot in life and in your
toilsome labor under the sun. 10Whatever your
hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in
the realm of the dead, where you are going,
there is neither working nor planning nor
knowledge nor wisdom. (NIV)
Ephesians 4:1-4
a prisoner for the LORD, then, I urge
you to live a life worthy of the calling you
have received. 2Be completely humble and
gentle; be patient, bearing with one another
in love. 3Make every effort to keep the unity
of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
4There is one body and one Spirit, just as
you were called to one hope when you were
called. (NIV)
Galatians 5:19-23
acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual
immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and
witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage,
selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy;
drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I
did before, that those who live like this will not
inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and selfcontrol. Against such things there is no law.(NIV)
