 MATTHEWS CHAPTER 10

20) If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.


21) It would have been better for them not to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.

12) Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.


13) Brothers and sister, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,


14) I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

                    1 PETER CHAPTER 4

                         VERSE, 17, 18



17) For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

19) You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.”


20) Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.


21) For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.


22) Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off.

                              VERSE 4

                 2 TIMOTHY CHAPTER 4

                           VERSE, 9, 10

                          VERSE, 11, 12

23) At that time if anyone says to you. Look, here is the Messiah! Or, There he is! Do not believe it.



24) For false messiah and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible even the elect.


                     LUKE CHAPTER 12

                   VERSE, 45, 46, 47, 48



45) But suppose the servant says to himself, My master is taking a long time in coming, and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk.


46) The master of the servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.


47) “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows.


48) But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

8) that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,

9) he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ.

 

                   1 PETER CHAPTER 3

                VERSE, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

1) Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,

2) when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

3) your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.

4) Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

5) For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands,

 

6) like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. you are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

7) Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

                            VERSE 17

4) Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children,

5) to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

6) Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.

7) In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness

8) and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

                   VERSE, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

5) The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you.

7) Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain.

8) Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.

9) He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.

29) I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.

30) Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.

31) So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.

                 VERSE, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23

19) Do not charge a fellow Israelite interest, whether on money or food or anything else that may earn interest.

20) You may charge a foreigner interest, but not a fellow Israelite, so that the LORD your GOD may bless you in everything you put your hand to in the land you are entering to possess

21) If you make a vow to the LORD your God, do not be slow to pay it, for the LORD your GOD will certainly demand it of you and you will be guilty of sin.

22) But if you refrain from making a vow, you will not be guilty.

23) Whatever your lips utter you must be sure to do, because you made your vow freely to the LORD your GOD with your own mouth.
