"Let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne Of Grace, that we may obtain Mercy,
and find Grace to help in time of need"
- When in sorrow, ...call John 14.
- John 14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe
in God, believe also in Me.
2 In My Father's House are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and The Way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto Him, LORD, we know not whither Thou goest;
and how can we know The Way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.
7 If ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also:
and from henceforth ye know Him, and have seen Him.
8 Philip saith unto Him, LORD, show us the Father, and it sufficeth
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you,
and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? he that hath seen Me hath seen the Father;
and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father
in Me? the Words that I speak unto you I speak not of Myself: but the Father that
dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works.
11 Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me:
or else believe Me for the very works' sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me,
the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because
I go unto My Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that will I do,
that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it.
15 If ye love Me, keep My Commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another
Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit Of Truth; Whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with
you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but
ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye
in Me, and I in you.
21 He that hath My Commandments, and keepeth Them, he it is
that loveth Me: and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love
him, and will manifest Myself to him.
22 Judas saith unto Him, not Iscariot, LORD, how is it that
Thou wilt manifest Thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, he will
keep My Words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our
abode with him.
24 He that loveth Me not keepeth not My Sayings: and the Word
which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's which sent Me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, Whom the Father
will send in My Name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you: not as
the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again
unto you. If ye loved Me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father:
for My Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when
it is come to pass, ye might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince
of this world cometh, and hath nothing in Me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and
as the Father gave Me Commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence."
- When men fail you, or you are depressed, ...call Psalm 27.
- Psalm 27:1 "A Psalm of David. 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?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon
me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not
fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the House of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the
Beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His Temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His Pavilion:
in the secret of His Tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a Rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round
about me: therefore will I offer in His Tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing,
yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon
me, and answer me.
8 When Thou saidst, Seek ye My Face; my heart said unto Thee,
Thy Face, LORD, will I seek.
9 Hide not Thy Face far from me; put not Thy servant away in
anger: Thou hast been my Help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my Salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will
take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because
of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false
witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness
of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD: be of Good Courage, and He shall strengthen
thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD."
- If you want to be fruitful, ...call John 15.
- John 15:1 "I am the True Vine, and My Father is the
2 Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more
3 Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.
5 I am the Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in Me, He is cast forth as a branch, and
is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, ye shall ask
what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is My Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so
shall ye be My disciples.
9 As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue
ye in My love.
10 If ye keep My Commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even
as I have kept My Father's Commandments, and abide in His love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain
in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is My Commandment, That ye love one another, as I have
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down
his life for his friends.
14 Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I Command you.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth
not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have
heard of My Father I have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained
you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you.
17 These things I Command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but
because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore
the world hateth you.
20 Remember the Word that I said unto you, The servant is not
greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you;
if they have kept My Saying, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things will they do unto you for My Name's
sake, because they know not Him that sent Me.
22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had
sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23 He that hateth Me hateth My Father also.
24 If I had not done among them the works which none other
man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both Me and
25 But this cometh to pass, that the Word might be fulfilled
that is written in their Law, They hated Me without a cause.
26 But when the Comforter is come, Whom I will send unto you
from the Father, even the Spirit Of Truth, Which proceedeth from the Father, He shall
testify of Me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with
Me from the beginning."
- When you have sinned, ...call Psalm 51.
- Psalm 51:1 "To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David,
when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy
upon me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of
Thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from
3 For I acknowledge my
transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against Thee, Thee only,
have I sinned, and done this evil in Thy sight: that Thou mightest be justified when
Thou speakest, and be clear when Thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother
6 Behold, Thou desirest
truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part Thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop,
and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and
gladness; that the bones which Thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean
heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from
Thy presence; and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the
joy of Thy Salvation; and uphold me with Thy Free Spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways; and sinners shall
be converted unto Thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness,
O God, Thou God of my Salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy Righteousness.
15 O LORD, open Thou my
lips; and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.
16 For Thou desirest not
sacrifice; else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God
are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in Thy good
pleasure unto Zion: build Thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt Thou be pleased
with the sacrifices of Righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering:
then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine altar."
- When you worry, ...call Matthew 6:19-34.
- Matthew 6:19 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon Earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
20 But lay up for yourselves Treasures in Heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your Treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye
be single, thy whole body shall be full of Light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of
darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the
one, and love the Other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the Other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put
on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do
they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not
much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies
of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which
to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you,
O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil
- When you are in danger, ...call Psalm 91.
- Psalm 91:1 "He that dwelleth
in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD,
He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
3 Surely He shall deliver
thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with
His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His Truth shall be thy shield
5 Thou shalt not be afraid
for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence
that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall
at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes
shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made
the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil
befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For He shall give His
angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee
up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon
the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set
his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he
hath known My Name.
15 He shall call upon Me,
and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour
16 With long life will
I satisfy him, and show him My Salvation."
- When God seems far away, ...call Psalm 139.
- Psalm 139:1 "To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
O LORD, Thou hast searched me, and known me.
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest
my thought afar off.
3 Thou compassest my path
and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word
in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, Thou knowest it altogether.
5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand
6 Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
7 Whither shall I go from
Thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from Thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there: if I make my
bed in hell, behold, Thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of
the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall Thy
hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the
darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
12 Yea, the darkness hideth
not from Thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both
alike to Thee.
13 For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in
my mother's womb.
14 I will praise Thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul
knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not
hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts
of the Earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and
in Thy Book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when
as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious also are
Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them,
they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.
19 Surely Thou wilt slay
the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
20 For they speak against
thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy Name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them,
O LORD, that hate Thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against Thee?
22 I hate them with perfect
hatred: I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and
know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be
any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."
- When your faith needs stirring, ...call Hebrews 11.
- Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith
is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders
obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand
that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were
not made of things which do appear.
4 By faith Abel offered
unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that
he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
5 By faith Enoch was translated
that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him:
for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
6 But without faith it
is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and
that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
7 By faith Noah, being
warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the
saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the
Righteousness which is by faith.
8 By faith Abraham, when
he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance,
obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned
in the land of Promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac
and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same Promise:
10 For he looked for a
City which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sara
herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she
was past age, because she judged Him faithful Who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there
even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude,
and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
13 These all died in faith,
not having received the Promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded
of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on
14 For they that say such
things declare plainly that they seek a Country.
15 And truly, if they had
been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity
to have returned.
16 But now they desire
a Better Country, that is, an Heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called
their God: for He hath prepared for them a City.
17 By faith Abraham, when
he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the Promises offered up
his only begotten son.
18 Of whom it was said,
That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
19 Accounting that God
was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in
20 By faith Isaac blessed
Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
21 By faith Jacob, when
he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the
top of his staff.
22 By faith Joseph, when
he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment
concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses, when
he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper
child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
24 By faith Moses, when
he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer
affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
26 Esteeming the reproach
of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the
recompense of the Reward.
27 By faith he forsook
Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him Who is invisible.
28 Through faith he kept
the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should
29 By faith they passed
through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of
Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
31 By faith the harlot
Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with
32 And what shall I more
say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and
of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
33 Who through faith subdued
kingdoms, wrought Righteousness, obtained Promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
34 Quenched the violence
of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant
in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
35 Women received their
dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that
they might obtain a better Resurrection:
36 And others had trial
of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
37 They were stoned, they
were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in
sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
38 (Of whom the world was
not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of
39 And these all, having
obtained a good report through faith, received not the Promise:
40 God having provided
some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect."

I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of Righteousness for His Name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy
rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table
before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup

shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
- When you grow bitter and critical, ...call I Corinthians 13.
- 1 Corinthians 13:1 "Though I speak with the tongues
of men and of angels, and have not Charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling
2 And though I have the
gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have
all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not Charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all
my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not Charity,
it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long,
and is kind; Charity envieth not; Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself
unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in the Truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth
all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth:
but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they
shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part,
and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which
is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child,
I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became
a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through
a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know
even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith,
hope, Charity, these three; but the greatest of these is Charity."

God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,

and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these
things put on Charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of
God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the Word of Christ
dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms

in word or deed, do all in the name of the LORD Jesus, giving thanks to God and the
Father by Him."

yet now henceforth know we Him no more.
17 Therefore if any man
be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things
are become new.
18 And all things are of
God, Who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the
ministry of reconciliation;

in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto
them; and hath committed unto us the Word of reconciliation."

so it seemed good in Thy sight.

not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His Own Son in the likeness
of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the Righteousness
of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the
5 For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the
things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded
is death; but to be Spiritually minded is Life and Peace.
7 Because the carnal mind
is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can
8 So then they that are
in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the
flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any
man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.
10 And if Christ be in
you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is Life because of Righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of
Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from
the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
12 Therefore, brethren,
we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if ye live after
the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the
body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led
by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received
the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit Of Adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit Itself beareth
witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then
heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with Him,
that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the
sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which
shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation
of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was
made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who hath subjected the
same in hope,
21 Because the creature
itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty
of the children of God.
22 For we know that the
whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but
ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan
within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by
hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope
25 But if we hope for that
we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
26 Likewise the Spirit
also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:
but the Spirit Itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And He that searcheth
the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession
for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all
things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according
to His purpose.
29 For whom He did foreknow,
He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be
the Firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom He did
predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and
whom He justified, them He also glorified."

the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto
Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,
2 Moses my servant is dead;
now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land
which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
3 Every place that the
sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the
Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your

be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I
will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
6 Be strong and of a good
courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which
I sware unto their fathers to give them.
7 Only be thou strong and
very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the Law, which Moses
My servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that
thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
8 This Book of the Law
shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,
that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then
thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9 Have not I commanded
thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for
the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
10 Then Joshua commanded
the officers of the people, saying,
11 Pass through the host,
and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall
pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth
you to possess it.
12 And to the Reubenites,
and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
13 Remember the word which
Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given
you rest, and hath given you this land.
14 Your wives, your little
ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side
Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour,
and help them;
15 Until the LORD have
given your brethren rest, as He hath given you, and they also have possessed the
land which the LORD your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your
possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD'S servant gave you on this side Jordan
toward the sunrising.
16 And they answered Joshua,
saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us,
we will go.
17 According as we hearkened
unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be
with thee, as He was with Moses.

- Romans 12:1 "I beseech
you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living

2 And be not conformed
to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove
what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the
grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more
highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt
to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members
in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are
one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing
according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according
to the proportion of faith;

on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth,
on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with
diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation.
Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned
one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business;
fervent in spirit; serving the LORD;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient
in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the
necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them which persecute
you: bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that
do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16 Be of the same mind
one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be
not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense to no man
evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is
mine; I will repay, saith the LORD.

of fire on his head.

from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan:
and the people resort unto Him again; and, as He was wont, He taught them again.
2 And the Pharisees came
to Him, and asked Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting Him.
3 And He answered and said
unto them, What did Moses command you?
4 And they said, Moses
suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
5 And Jesus answered and
said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
6 But from the beginning
of the creation God made them male and female.
7 For this cause shall
a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
8 And they twain shall
be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
9 What therefore God hath
joined together, let not man put asunder.
10 And in the house His
disciples asked Him again of the same matter.

Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against

put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

He was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto
Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you,

16 And He took them up
in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.
17 And when He was gone
forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good
Master, what shall I do that I may inherit Eternal Life?
18 And Jesus said unto
him, Why callest thou Me good? there is none good but One, that is, God.
19 Thou knowest the Commandments,
Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud
not, Honour thy father and mother.
20 And he answered and
said unto Him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever
thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in Heaven: and come,
take up the cross, and follow Me.
22 And he was sad at that
saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
23 And Jesus looked round
about, and saith unto His disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter
into the Kingdom of God!
24 And the disciples were
astonished at His Words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children,
how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!
25 It is easier for a camel
to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom

out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things

say unto Him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed Thee.

shall be last; and the last first.
32 And they were in the
way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and
as they followed, they were afraid. And He took again the twelve, and began to tell
them what things should happen unto Him,
33 Saying, Behold, we go
up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and
unto the scribes; and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the

Him, and shall scourge Him, and shall spit upon Him, and shall kill Him: and the
third day He shall rise again.
35 And James and John,
the sons of Zebedee, come unto Him, saying, Master, we would that Thou shouldest
do for us whatsoever we shall desire.
36 And He said unto them,
What would ye that I should do for you?
37 They said unto Him,
Grant unto us that we may sit, one on Thy right hand, and the other on Thy left hand,
in Thy glory.
38 But Jesus said unto
them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized
with the baptism that I am baptized with?
39 And they said unto Him,
We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of;
and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:
40 But to sit on My right
hand and on My left hand is not Mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom
it is prepared.
41 And when the ten heard
it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.

to Him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the
Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon

be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

and as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people, blind
Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that
it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, Thou Son of David,
have mercy on me.
48 And many charged him
that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David,
have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still,
and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be
of good comfort, rise; He calleth thee.

his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and
said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto
Him, LORD, that I might receive my sight.

him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his
sight, and followed Jesus in the way."

thy Righteousness as the Light, and thy Judgment as the noonday.

forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay
such as be of upright conversation.

into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

- John 13:1 "Now before
the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour was come that He should
depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own which were in the
world, He loved them unto the end.
2 And supper being ended,
the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray
3 Jesus knowing that the
Father had given all things into His hands, and that He was come from God, and went
4 He riseth from supper,
and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself.
5 After that He poureth
water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with
the towel wherewith He was girded.
6 Then cometh He to Simon
Peter: and Peter saith unto Him, LORD, dost Thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said
unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto Him,
Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast
no part with Me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto
Him, LORD, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him,
He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and
ye are clean, but not all.
11 For He knew who should
betray Him; therefore said He, Ye are not all clean.
12 So after He had washed
their feet, and had taken His garments, and was set down again, He said unto them,
Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call Me Master and
LORD: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your LORD
and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you
an Example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say
unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater
than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things,
happy are ye if ye do them.
18 I speak not of you all:
I know whom I have chosen: but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, he that eateth
bread with Me hath lifted up his heel against Me.
19 Now I tell you before
it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I Am He.
20 Verily, verily, I say
unto you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth Me; and he that receiveth
Me receiveth Him that sent Me.
21 When Jesus had thus
said, He was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto
you, that one of you shall betray Me.
22 Then the disciples looked
one on another, doubting of whom He spake.
23 Now there was leaning
on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.
24 Simon Peter therefore
beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom He spake.
25 He then lying on Jesus'
breast saith unto Him, LORD, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, He it
is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when He had dipped the
sop, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27 And after the sop Satan
entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28 Now no man at the table
knew for what intent He spake this unto him.
29 For some of them thought,
because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we
have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
30 He then having received
the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
31 Therefore, when he was
gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him.
32 If God be glorified
in Him, God shall also glorify Him in Himself, and shall straightway glorify Him.
33 Little children, yet

35 By this shall all men
know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said unto
Him, LORD, whither goest Thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow
me now; but thou shalt follow Me afterwards.
37 Peter said unto Him,
LORD, why cannot I follow Thee now? I will lay down my life for Thy sake.

Wilt thou lay down thy life for My sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock
shall not crow, till thou hast denied Me thrice."
