Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example,
that you should follow His steps.
Even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve. § Whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.
Jesus of Nazareth … went about doing good. § Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
The meekness and gentleness of Christ. § In lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do. § Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. § [Look] unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

I sought him, but I could not find him; I called
him, but he gave me no answer.
O Lord, what shall I say when Israel turns its back before its enemies?’’ … So the Lord said to Joshua: “Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face? Israel has sinned. For they have even taken some of the accursed things … and they have also put it among their own stuff.”
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear.
Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
