“For just as the Father has life in himself, thus he has granted the Son to have life in himself.” — John 5:26 NET
Our Savior Christ Jesus … has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel!—“I am the resurrection and the life.”—“Because I live, you will live too.”—For we have become partners with Christ.—Partakers of the Holy Spirit.—Partakers of the divine nature.—“The first man, Adam, became a living person”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.—Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed – in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
“Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God, the All-Powerful, Who was and who is, and who is still to come!”—Who lives forever and ever.—The blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords. He alone possesses immortality.—Now to the eternal king, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever! Amen.
2 Tim 1:10, John 11:25, John 14:19, Heb 3:14, Heb 6:4, 2 Pet 1:4, 1 Cor 15:45, 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 4:8-9, 1 Tim 6:15-16, 1 Tim 1:17
Let us not become conceited. — Gal 5:26 NET
Gideon continued, “I would like to make one request. Each of you give me an earring from the plunder you have taken.” (The Midianites had gold earrings because they were Ishmaelites.) They said, “We are happy to give you earrings.” So they spread out a garment, and each one threw an earring from his plunder onto it. Gideon used all this to make an ephod, which he put in his hometown of Ophrah. All the Israelites prostituted themselves to it by worshiping it there. It became a snare to Gideon and his family.
“Are you looking for great things for yourself? Do not look for such things.”—Because of the extraordinary character of the revelations. Therefore, so that I would not become arrogant, a thorn in the flesh was given to me.
Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself.—Love … it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up. It is not rude, it is not self-serving.
“Take my yoke on you and learn from me.”
Judg 8:24-25, Judg 8:27, Jer 45:5, 2 Cor 12:7, Phil 2:3, 1 Cor 13:4-5, Matt 11:29
