As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.

ROMANS 14:1

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church at Cenchreae, that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a patron of many and of myself as well.

ADOPTION

* * *

[Jesus said,] "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you."

JOHN 14:18

When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, "Because," she said, "I drew him out of the water."

EXODUS 2:10

He was bringing up Hadassah, that is Esther, the daughter of his uncle, for she had neither father nor mother. The young woman had a beautiful figure and was lovely to look at, and when her father and her mother died, Mordecai took her as his own daughter.

ESTHER 2:7

When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.

HOSEA 11:1

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

ROMANS 8:15-16

BEAUTY

* * *

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

PROVERBS 31:30

Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.

1 PETER 3:4

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns."

ISAIAH 52:7

One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.

PSALM 27:4

CALLING OF GOD

* * *

You ... are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

ROMANS 1:6

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

1 PETER 2:9

But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:13-14

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

ROMANS 8:28

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

GALATIANS 5:13

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

PHILIPPIANS 3:14

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:9

For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:7

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 TIMOTHY 6:12

CHEER

* * *

When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.

PSALM 94:19

Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.

JAMES 5:13

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall exult in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

ISAIAH 61:10

[Jesus said,] "These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full."

JOHN 15:11

CHILDREN

* * *

[Jesus said,] "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."

MATTHEW 18:5-6

A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother.

PROVERBS 10:1

[Jesus said,] "Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."

MARK 10:15

At that time Jesus declared, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children."

MATTHEW 11:25

CLEANSING

* * *

Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! ... Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

PSALM 51:2, 7

Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.

2 CORINTHIANS 7:1

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

I SAIAH 1:18

Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no share with me."

JOHN 13:8

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 JOHN 1:9

CLOTHING

* * *

Rend your hearts and not your garments. Return to the LORD, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.

JOEL 2:13

Do not let your adorning be external — the braiding of hair, the wearing of gold, or the putting on of clothing.

1 PETER 3:3

Show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, "You sit here in a good place," while you say to the poor man, "You stand over there," or, "Sit down at my feet," have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

JAMES 2:1-4

COMMUNITY

* * *

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

ROMANS 12:4-5

And all who believed were together and had all things in common.

ACTS 2:44

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

HEBREWS 10:24-25

For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body — Jews or Greeks, slaves or free — and all were made to drink of one Spirit.

1 CORINTHIANS 12:13

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.

ROMANS 12:15

CONFIDENCE

* * *

The LORD will be your confidence.

PROVERBS 3:26

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ROMANS 8:38-39

For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O LORD, from my youth.

PSALM 71:5

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

1 JOHN 5:14-15

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

JOSHUA 1:9

CONTENTMENT

* * *

[Jesus said,] "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?"

MATTHEW 6:25

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."

HEBREWS 13:5

I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

PHILIPPIANS 4:11-13

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.

1 TIMOTHY 6:6-8

CONVICTION OF THE HEART

* * *

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 TIMOTHY 6:12

For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:4-5

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

HEBREWS 11:1

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

HEBREWS 10:22

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.

2 CORINTHIANS 4:16

By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God.

1 JOHN 3:19-21

For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ.

COLOSSIANS 2:1-2

For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:4

For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.

JOB 19:25

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ROMANS 8:38-39

COVENANT

* * *

But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD:I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

JEREMIAH 31:33

But to all who did receive [Jesus], who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

JOHN 1:12

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

GALATIANS 4:4-5

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.

DEUTERONOMY 7:9

CREATION

* * *

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

GENESIS 1:1-2

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

COLOSSIANS 1:16-17

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

GENESIS 1:27

So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

GENESIS 2:21-22

My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes observe my ways.

PROVERBS 23:26

But no devoted thing that a man devotes to the LORD, of anything that he has, whether man or beast, or of his inherited field, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to the LORD.

Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

1 SAMUEL 12:24

Walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.

1 THESSALONIANS 2:12

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
