Know that the Lord is God.
It is He who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
“Let all that you do be done in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:14
Do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewal of your mind,
that by testing you may discern what is the will
of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Not giving up meeting together,
as some are in the habit of doing,
but encouraging one another-and all
the more as you see the day approaching.
With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.
