Let everything that has breath praise the LORD . Praise the LORD .
What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has FREELY given us.
1 Corinthians 2:12
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29
I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. KEEP AWAY FROM THEM. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have HOPE.
Love Fulfills The Law:
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.
ir·rev·o·ca·ble [ih-rev-uh-kuh-buh l]
not to be revoked or recalled; unable to be repealed or annulled; unalterable: an irrevocable decree.
For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be RECEIVED BY FAITH. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who JUSTIFIES those who have FAITH in Jesus.
This righteousness is given through FAITH in Jesus Christ to ALL who BELIEVE. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and ALL are JUSTIFIED FREELY by his GRACE through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
