John 1:14

14 So the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we observed His glory, glory of an Only-begotten, from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:12

12 But, as many as did receive Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe into His name:

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If I speak the languages of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become a sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 Even if I give away all my possessions and hand over my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy; love does not brag, is not proud, 5 is not indecent, is not self-seeking, is not ‘short-fused’, is not malicious; 6 it does not take pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 it bears all, believes all, hopes all, endures all; 8 love never fails. Now as for prophecies, they will be set aside; as for languages, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will be superseded; 9 since we know in part and prophesy in part. 10 But whenever the complete should come, then the ‘in part’ will be done away with. 11 (When I was a small child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; but when I became a man, I put away the things of the child.) 12 Because now we see blurred images as in a metal mirror, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I also am fully known. 13 For now these three obtain: faith, hope, love; and the greatest of these is love.

2 Timothy 3:16

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is valuable for teaching, for reproving, for correcting, for training in righteousness,

Jude 1:1-25

1 Jude, slave of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to the called, those who have been sanctified by God the Father and preserved through Jesus Christ: 2 May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you. 3 Dear ones, while I was really intent on writing to you about the salvation we share, I had a compulsion to write exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith once for all committed to the saints. 4 Because certain men, who were marked out for this condemnation long ago, have sneaked in; they are godless, perverting the grace of our God into licentiousness and denying the only Sovereign God, even our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 So I want to remind you, though you already know this, that the Lord delivered a people out of the land of Egypt yet later destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain but deserted their own dwelling He has kept bound in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day. 7 So also Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns—who gave themselves up to fornication and went after a different kind of flesh in a manner similar to those angels—stand as an example, undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. 8 Likewise these dreamers in their turn both defile flesh and reject authority and slander celestial beings. 9 Yet even Michael the archangel, when taking issue with the devil—he was arguing about Moses’ corpse —did not dare to pronounce a reviling judgment, but said, “May the Lord rebuke you!” 10 But these speak abusively against whatever they do not understand, while whatever they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals—by these things they are ruined. 11 Woe to them, because they have taken the way of Cain, have rushed into Balaam’s error for profit, and have destroyed themselves in Korah’s rebellion! 12 These men are hidden reefs at your love feasts, joining the feast without fear, caring only for themselves; they are clouds without rain, carried along by winds; they are late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead (having been uprooted); 13 they are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their own shameful acts; they are wandering stars, for whom the black of the darkness has been reserved forever. 14 Now even Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men saying: “Look, the Lord is coming with ten thousands of His holy ones 15 to execute judgment on everyone and to convict all the godless among them of all their godless deeds that they have godlessly perpetrated, also of all the harsh things they have spoken against Him—the godless sinners!” 16 These men are grumblers and complainers, living according to their own evil desires; they talk big, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, dear ones, remember the words that were spoken before by the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that in the last time there will be scoffers who live according to their own godless desires. 19 These are the ones who cause division; they are ‘soulish’, not having a spirit. 20 But you, dear ones, building yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love, looking forward to the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ into eternal life. 22 Now be merciful to some, making a distinction; 23 but others save with fear, snatching them out of the fire, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. 24 Now to Him who is able to keep them from stumbling and to present them before His glorious presence without fault and with exultation— 25 to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, power and authority, both now and throughout all the ages! Amen.

Luke 21:34

34 “But keep a watch on yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness, and cares of life, and that Day come upon you suddenly.

1 Peter 5:6

6 Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time;

Philippians 4:6

6 Don’t be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition along with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
