Gen 1: 26 ...God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness... 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them... 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green
pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 3 He restores my soul. He leads
me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Even though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I
shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of
the Almighty. 2 I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my
God, in whom I trust." 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the
fowler and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and
buckler. 5 You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies
by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction
that wastes at noonday... 9 Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place
-- the Most High, who is my refuge -- 10 no evil shall be allowed to befall
you, no plague come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning
you to guard you in all your ways. 12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread on the lion and
the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. 14 "Because
he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because
he knows my name. 15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with
him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. 16 With long life I will
satisfy him and show him my salvation."
Psa 100: 1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! 2 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! 3 Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psa 145: 9 The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. 10 All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you! 11 They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power, 12 to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works. 14 The LORD upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. 15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. 16 You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing. 17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works.
Luk 17 (TEV): 20 ...The Kingdom of God does not come in such a way as to be seen. 21 No one will say, Look, here it is! or, There it is!; because the Kingdom of God is within you."
Mar 11: 25 ...Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone...
Luk 6: 27 ...Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
Mat 9: 2 Some people brought to him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, my son; your sins are forgiven." 3 And behold, some of the scribes said to themselves, "This man is blaspheming." 4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise and walk'? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"- he then said to the paralytic- "Rise, pick up your bed and go home." 7 And he rose and went home. 8 When the crowds saw it, they were afraid, and they glorified God, who had given such authority to men.
Mat 10: 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons.
Joh 14:12 ...Whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
Jam 5: 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Joh 17: 1 ...Jesus ... lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. ... 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them... 17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth... 20 "I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me... 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them."
Act 17: 27 ...[God] is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for "'In him we live and move and have our being'; as even some of your own poets have said, "' For we are indeed his offspring.'
Rom 8: 2 ...The law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death... 6 ...To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace... 9 You... are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you... 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you... 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs -- heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ... 21 ...The creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God... 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers... 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?... 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Gal 5: 22 ...The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
1Jo 4: 16 ...We have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him... 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear... 19 We love because he first loved us.
Phi 2: 13 ...God is always at work in you to make you willing and able to obey his own purpose.
Phi 4: 6 ...Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 ...Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
23 ...Be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and ... put on the new self,
created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
Col 3: 9 ...You have put off the old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 11 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
12 ...Now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13 So now faith,
hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1Jo 3: 1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
