“So,when all these things begin to happen,stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”
New Living Translation
“Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God, who sent me.”
“Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”
“O, how my soul praises the Lord. How my spirit rejoices in God my Savior!”
May God’s grace be with you.
You must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it. Don’t drift away from the assurance you received when you heard the Good News.
We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven.
“So Pilate released Barabbas to them. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to be crucified.”
