Bible verses about "transforming your heart" | LITV
12 For the word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart;
18 through all prayer and petition, praying at every time in the Spirit, and watching to this same thing with all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints.
2 We give thanks to God always concerning you all, making mention of you on our prayers,
1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: 2 And it shall be in the last days, the mountain of the house of Jehovah shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow into it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come and let us go up to the mount of Jehovah, to the house of the God of Jacob. And He will teach from His ways, and we will walk in His paths. For out of Zion the law will go forth, and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem. 4 And He shall judge among the nations and shall rebuke many people. And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war any more. 5 Oh house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of Jehovah. 6 For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled from the east, and are fortunetellers like the Philistines. And they clap hands with children of foreigners. 7 And his land is filled with silver and gold. There is no end of his treasures. And his land is full of horses; his chariots also do not have an end. 8 And his land is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made. 9 And man bowed down; and man was humbled, but You do not lift them up. 10 Enter into the rock and hide in the dust from fear of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty. 11 The lofty eyes of man shall be humbled, and the pride of men shall be bowed down; but Jehovah, He alone, will be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of Jehovah of Hosts shall be on all the proud and lofty ones, and on all that is lifted up; and it will be abased; 13 and against all Lebanon's cedars, high and lifted up; and against all the oaks of Bashan; 14 and against all the high mountains; and against all the lifted up hills; 15 and against every tall tower; and against every fortified wall; 16 and against all the ships of Tarshish; and on all pleasurable craft. 17 And the pride of man shall be humbled; and the loftiness of men shall be abased; and Jehovah alone will be exalted in that day. 18 And the idols shall completely vanish. 19 And they shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, for fear of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth quake. 20 ln that day a man shall throw his silver and his golden idols which they made for him to worship, to the hole of the burrower and to the bats; 21 to go into the crevices of the rocks, and into the clefts of the cliffs, from the dread of Jehovah, and from the glory of His majesty; when He rises up to make the earth quake. 22 Cease yourself from man, whose breath is in his nostril, for in what is he to be esteemed?
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men; 5 and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it. 6 There was a man sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came for a witness, that he might witness concerning the Light, that all might believe through Him. 8 He was not that Light, but that he might witness concerning the Light. 9 He was the true Light; He enlightens every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through Him, yet the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to the ones believing into His name, 13 who were born not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but were born of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth. 15 John witnesses concerning Him, and has cried out, saying, This One was He of whom I said, He coming after me has been before me, for He was preceding me. 16 And out of His fullness we all received, and grace on top of grace. 17 For the Law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, that One reveals Him . 19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites that they might ask him, Who are you? 20 And he acknowledged and did not deny; yea, he acknowledged, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What, then? Are you Elijah? And he said, I am not. Are you the Prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then they said to him, Who are you, that we may give an answer to those sending us? What do you say about yourself? 23 He said, "I am a voice crying in the wilderness:" "Make straight" "the way of the Lord," as Isaiah the prophet said. Isa. 40:3 24 And those who had been sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him and said to him, Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I baptize in water, but One stands in your midst whom you do not know; 27 This One it is who has come after me, who has been before me, of whom I am not worthy that I should loose the thong of His sandal. 28 These things took place in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 On the morrow, John sees Jesus coming toward him and said, Behold! The Lamb of God, taking away the sin of the world! 30 This is He about whom I said, After me comes a Man who has been before me, for He was preceding me. 31 And I did not know Him; but that He be revealed to Israel, for this reason I came baptizing in water. 32 And John witnessed, saying, I have seen the Spirit coming down as a dove out of Heaven, and He abode on Him. 33 And I did not know Him, but the One sending me to baptize in water, that One said to me, On whomever you see the Spirit coming down and abiding on Him, this is the One baptizing in the Holy Spirit. 34 And I have seen and have witnessed that this One is the Son of God. 35 Again on the morrow, John and two from his disciples stood. 36 And looking at Jesus walking, he said, Behold, the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus. 38 But having seen them following, Jesus said to them, What do you seek? And they said to Him, Rabbi (which being translated is called Teacher), where do You stay? 39 He said to them, Come and see. They went and saw where He stayed, and they remained with Him that day. And the hour was about the tenth. 40 Andrew the brother of Simon Peter was one of the two who heard from John and was following Him. 41 This one first found his own brother Simon and tells him, We have found the Messiah (which being translated is, the Christ). 42 And he led him to Jesus. And looking at him, Jesus said, You are Simon the son of Jonah; you shall be called Cephas (which translated is Peter). 43 And on the morrow, Jesus desired to go out into Galilee. And He found Philip, and says to him, Follow me! 44 And Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finds Nathanael and said to him, We have found the One of whom Moses wrote in the Law and the Prophets, Jesus the son of Joseph, from Nazareth. 46 And Nathanael said to him, Can any good thing be out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and see. 47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him and said concerning him, Behold, truly an Israelite in whom is no guile! 48 Nathanael said to Him, From where do You know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called, you being under the fig tree, I saw you. 49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel. 50 Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these. 51 And He says to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, from now on you will see Heaven opened, and "the angels of God ascending and descending" on the Son of man. Gen. 28:12
6 being persuaded of this very thing, that the One having begun a good work in you will finish it until the day of Jesus Christ;
1 Then having laid aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil words, 2 as newborn babes desire the pure soul-nourishing milk, that you may grow by it; 3 if indeed you "tasted" "that the Lord is good;" LXX-Psa. 33:9; MT-Psa. 34:8 4 to whom having drawn near, a living Stone, indeed having been rejected by men, but chosen by God, precious; 5 you also as living stones are being built a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Because of this, it is also contained in the Scripture: "Behold," I lay in Zion" an elect, "precious Stone," "a Corner-foundation;" "and the one believing in Him shall never in any way be ashamed." Isa. 28:16 7 Then to you who believe belongs the preciousness. But to disobeying ones, He is the "Stone which those building rejected; this One became the Head-of-the-corner," Psa. 118:22 8 and a Stone-of-stumbling, and a Rock-of-offense" to those disobeying, stumbling at the word, to which they were also appointed. Isa. 8:14 9 But you are "an elect race," "a royal priesthood," "a holy nation," "a people for possession," so that "you may openly speak of the virtues" of the One who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; LXX-Ex. 23:22; MT-Ex. 19:5, 6 10 you who then were "not a people, but now are the people" of God; "the one not pitied then but now pitied." Hos. 1:6, 9 2:1, 23 11 Beloved, I exhort you as temporary residents and pilgrims to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul; 12 having your behavior good among the nations, in that which they speak against you as evildoers; by observing your good works, they may glorify God in a day of visitation. 13 Then be in obedience to every ordinance of men because of the Lord; whether to a king, as being supreme; 14 or to governors, as through Him having indeed been sent for vengeance on evildoers, but praise on well doers, 15 because so is the will of God, doing good to silence the ignorance of foolish men; 16 as free, and not having freedom as a cover of evil, but as slaves of God; 17 honor all, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king. 18 Servants, be obedient to your masters in all fear, not only to those good and forbearing, but also to the perverse ones . 19 For this is a grace, if because of conscience toward God anyone bears grief, suffering unjustly. 20 For what glory is it if you patiently endure while sinning and being buffeted? But if you are suffering while doing good, and patiently endure, this is a grace from God. 21 For you were called to this, for even Christ suffered on our behalf, leaving behind an example for us, that you should follow His steps; 22 "who did not sin, nor was guile found in His mouth;" Isa. 53:9 23 who, having been reviled, did not revile in return; suffering, He did not threaten, but gave Himself up to Him who was judging righteously; 24 who "Himself bore in His body our sins" onto the tree; that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness; of whom, "by His wound, you were healed. 25 For you were straying sheep," Isa. 53:4 -6 but now you are turned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
18 the eyes of your mind having been enlightened, for you to know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
1 Therefore, brothers, I call on you through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of God. 3 For through the grace which is given to me, I say to everyone being among you, not to have high thoughts beyond what is right to think. But set your mind to be right-minded, even as God divided a measure of faith to each. 4 For even as we have many members in one body, but all members do not have the same function, 5 so we the many are one body in Christ, and each one members of one another, 6 but having different gifts according to the grace given to us, whether prophecy, according to the proportion of faith; 7 or ministry, in the ministry; or the one teaching, in the teaching; 8 or the one exhorting, in the encouragement; the one sharing, in simplicity; the one taking the lead, in diligence; the one showing mercy, in cheerfulness. 9 Let love be without dissimulation, shrinking from evil, cleaving to the good, 10 in brotherly love to one another, loving fervently, having gone before one another in honor; 11 in diligence, not slothful, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 in hope, rejoicing; in affliction, enduring; in prayer, steadfastly continuing; 13 imparting to the needs of the saints, pursuing hospitality. 14 Bless those persecuting you; bless, and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with rejoicing ones, and weep with weeping ones; 16 minding the same thing toward one another, not minding high things, but yielding to the lowly. Do not become wise within yourselves. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, having provided right things before all men. Prov. 3:4 18 If possible, as far as is in you, seeking peace with all men; 19 not avenging yourselves, beloved, but giving place to wrath, for it has been written, "Vengeance is Mine," "I will repay," says the Lord. Deut. 32:35 20 Then "if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink; for doing this you will heap coals of fire on his head." Prov. 25:21, 22 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome the evil with good.
26 And I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you. And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give to you a heart of flesh.
17 So that if anyone is in Christ, that one is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!
