Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves.
