Psalm 24

Psalm 24:1. “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2. for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. 3. Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4. The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. 5. They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. 6. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob. 7. Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. 9. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10. Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory.”

Hebrews 1:1-3

Hebrews 1:1. “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2. but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.”

Jesus Christ, our Savior!! ❤❤❤

Titus 3:1-11

Titus 3:1. “Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2. to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone. 3. At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5. he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6. whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7. so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone. 9. But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10. Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. 11. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.”

Titus 2:1-10

Titus 2:1. :You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. 2. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. 3. Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5. to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 6. Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. 7. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8. and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. 9. Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, 10. and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.”

Some would say this is not relevant because slavery was abolished and most was but it also applies beautifully for employees and their boss(es). I think God’s Word is as real and relevant as ever. ❤❤❤

Titus 2:11-14

Titus 2:11. “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13. while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14. who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”

Romans 8:22-28

Romans 8:22. “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25. But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 26. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. 28. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
