But now, this is what the Lord says—He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine...
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
This is what the Lord says: Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches...
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.
