so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, so that you may fear the Lord your God forever.”
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our wrongdoings, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)
For I desire loyalty rather than sacrifice,
And the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord, He is God; there is no other besides Him.
for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sakes.
I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, so that He may be with you forever
God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
So if you, despite being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
