Revive us, and we will call upon Your name. 

It is the Spirit who gives life. § The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. § [Pray] always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance.

I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have given me life. § The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. § The letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. § If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. § This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

No one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

Ps. 80:18; John 6:63; Rom. 8:26–27; Eph. 6:18;

Have no fellowship with the unfruitful
works of darkness, but rather expose them. 

Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”

Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? There- fore purge out the old leaven … I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. § Become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.

In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.

Eph. 5:11; 1 Cor. 15:33; 5:6–7, 9–11; Phil. 2:15; 2 Tim. 2:20
