This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.
- 2 Thessalonians 2.13
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
– John 3.16
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
– Psalm 139.8
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but does not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
– 1 Corinthians 13.2-3
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
– Matthew 18.20
