John 6:50-71

50 This is the bread that comes down from heaven so that someone may eat from it and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread, he will live forever.* And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." 52 So the Jews began to quarrel* among themselves,* saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" 53 Then Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life in yourselves! 54 The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 The one who eats* my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me and I in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so also the one who eats* me—that one will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven, not as the fathers ate and died. The one who eats* this bread will live forever."* 59 He said these things while* teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. 60 Thus many of his disciples, when they* heard it,* said, "This saying is hard! Who can understand it?" 61 But Jesus, because he* knew within himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, said to them, "Does this cause you to be offended? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before? 63 The Spirit is the one who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe." (For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) 65 And he said, "Because of this I said to you that no one can come to me unless it has been granted to him by the Father." 66 For this reason many of his disciples drew back* and were not walking with him any longer. 67 So Jesus said to the twelve, "You do not want to go away also, do you?"* 68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 And we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God." 70 Jesus replied to them, "Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is the devil?" 71 (Now he was speaking about Judas son of Simon Iscariot, because this one—one of the twelve—was going to betray him.)

John 20:19-23

19 Now when it* was evening on that day—the first day of the week—and the doors had been shut where the disciples were because of fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace to you." 20 And when he* had said this, he showed his* hands and his* side to them. Then the disciples rejoiced when they* saw the Lord. 21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you." 22 And when he* had said this, he breathed on them* and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them. If you retain the sins* of any, they are retained."

1 Corinthians 3:15-17

15 If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but so as through fire. 16 Do you not know that you are God's temple and the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy this one. For God's temple is holy, which you are.

1 Corinthians 7:32-34

32 But I want you to be free from care. The unmarried person cares for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. 33 But the one who is married cares for the things of the world, how he may please his wife, 34 and he is divided. And the unmarried woman or the virgin cares for the things of the Lord, in order that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But the married woman cares for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.

James 2:14-26

14 What is the benefit, my brothers, if someone says that he has faith but does not have works? That faith is not able to save him, is it?* 15 If a brother or a sister is poorly clothed and lacking food for the day, 16 and one of you should say to them, "Go in peace, keep warm and eat well*," but does not give them what is necessary for the body, what is the benefit? 17 Thus also faith, if it does not have works, is dead by itself. 18 But someone will say, "You have faith and I have works."* Show me your faith apart from your* works, and I will show you my* faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe, and shudder! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he* offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith was working together with his works, and by the works the faith was perfected. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "And Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness,"* and he was called God's friend. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 And likewise was not Rahab the prostitute also justified by works when she* welcomed the messengers and sent them out by a different route? 26 For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

11 For no one is able to lay another foundation than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds upon the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, straw, 13 the work of each one will become evident. For the day will reveal it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the work of each one, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone's work that he has built upon it remains, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but so as through fire.

1 Corinthians 7:10-11

10 To the married I command—not I, but the Lord—a wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if indeed she does separate, she must remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
