"Come to Me, all
you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and

My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in
that we should not trust in ourselves but in God..."
God is for us, who can be against us?
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all,
how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall
bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is
he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also
risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes
intercession for us.
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation,
or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or
sword? ... Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death
nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things
present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other
created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"Whom have I
in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
"Therefore we do
not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light
affliction, which is but for a moment [as seen from God's
eternity], is working for us a far more exceeding and
eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things
which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the
things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are
not seen are eternal."

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord
has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim
liberty to the captives,

faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life."
"For the Lord
Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the
dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and
remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds

love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection

"Blessed be the
God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of
mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all
our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who
are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves
are comforted by God.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our
consolation also abounds through Christ. Now if we are
afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which
is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also
suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation
and salvation. And our hope for you is steadfast, because we
know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also
you will partake of the consolation."
"Now may the
God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may
your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at
the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is
faithful, who also will do it."
