The Lamb without Blemish

17  Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. 18  For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19  but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:17-19 (NIV)

Tight wads

6  Don’t eat with people who are stingy; don’t desire their delicacies. 7  They are always thinking about how much it costs. “Eat and drink,” they say, but they don’t mean it. Proverbs 23:6-7 (NLT2)

“Do this and you will live.”

25  On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 26  "What is written in the Law?" he replied. "How do you read it?" 27  He answered: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" 28  "You have answered correctly," Jesus replied. "Do this and you will live." Luke 10:25-28 (NIV)

Striving toward that mustard seed

Matthew 17:20 (NIV) He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Be rescued from your captivity of sorrows!

12  They shall come home and sing songs of joy upon the hills of Zion and shall be radiant over the goodness of the Lord—the good crops, the wheat, the wine, and the oil, and the healthy flocks and herds. Their life shall be like a watered garden, and all their sorrows shall be gone. 13  The young girls will dance for joy, and menfolk—old and young—will take their part in all the fun; for I will turn their mourning into joy, and I will comfort them and make them rejoice, for their captivity with all its sorrows will be behind them. Jeremiah 31:12-13 (TLB)
