Chapter 10:1-21
Salvation is for all

  1 Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God on their behalf is for salvation.

2I testify with regard to them that they have zeal for God, but it is not discerning.

3For, in their unawareness of the righteousness that comes from God and their attempt to establish their own [righteousness], they did not submit to the righteousness of God.

4For Christ is the end of the law for the justification of everyone who has faith. 

5 Moses writes about the righteousness that comes from [the] law, “The one who does these things will live by them.”

6But the righteousness that comes from faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will go up into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down) 

7 or ‘Who will go down into the abyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).”

8But what does it say?
“The word is near you,
in your mouth and in your heart”
(that is, the word of faith that we preach), 

9for, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. 

11For the scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.”

12For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all, enriching all who call upon him.
13For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. 

14 But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach?

15And how can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring [the] good news!”

16But not everyone has heeded the good news; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what was heard from us?”

17Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.

18But I ask, did they not hear? Certainly they did; for 

“Their voice has gone forth to all the earth,
and their words to the ends of the world.”

19But I ask, did not Israel understand? First Moses says:
“I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation;
with a senseless nation I will make you angry.”

20 Then Isaiah speaks boldly and says:
“I was found [by] those who were not seeking me;
I revealed myself to those who were not asking for me.”

21But regarding Israel he says, “All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contentious people.”

Chapter 1:19-27
Doers of the Word

19Know this, my dear brothers: everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath,

20for the wrath of a man does not accomplish the righteousness of God.

21Therefore, put away all filth and evil excess and humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. 

22Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.

23For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. 

24He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. 

25But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.
26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue* but deceives his heart, his religion is vain.

27Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Chapter 31-20
The Preaching of John the Baptist

1In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene, 

2during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert. 

3 He went throughout [the] whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,

4 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:
“A voice of one crying out in the desert:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight his paths.

5Every valley shall be filled
and every mountain and hill shall be made low.
The winding roads shall be made straight,
and the rough ways made smooth,

6and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”

7He said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

8Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance; and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

9Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” 

10And the crowds asked him, “What then should we do?” 

11He said to them in reply, “Whoever has two tunics should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.” 

12Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do?”

13He answered them, “Stop collecting more than what is prescribed.” 

14Soldiers also asked him, “And what is it that we should do?” He told them, “Do not practice extortion, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be satisfied with your wages.” 

15 Now the people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Messiah. 

16 John answered them all, saying, “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire. 17His winnowing fan  is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”

18Exhorting them in many other ways, he preached good news to the people. 

19 Now Herod the tetrarch, who had been censured by him because of Herodias, his brother’s wife, and because of all the evil deeds Herod had committed, 

20added still another to these by [also] putting John in prison.

Chapter 2:14-32
Peter’s Speech at Pentecost

14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed to them, “You who are Jews, indeed all of you staying in Jerusalem. Let this be known to you, and listen to my words. 

15These people are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. 

16No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: 

17‘It will come to pass in the last days,’ God says,
‘that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh.
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
your young men shall see visions,
your old men shall dream dreams.

18Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids
I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days,
and they shall prophesy.

19And I will work wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below:
blood, fire, and a cloud of smoke.

20The sun shall be turned to darkness,
and the moon to blood,
before the coming of the great and splendid day of the Lord,

21and it shall be that everyone shall be saved who calls on
the name of the Lord.’

22You who are Israelites, hear these words. Jesus the Nazorean was a man commended to you by God with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs, which God worked through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.

23This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God, you killed, using lawless men to crucify him.

24But God raised him up, releasing him from the throes of death, because it was impossible for him to be held by it.

 25For David says of him:
‘I saw the Lord ever before me,
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

26Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted;
my flesh, too, will dwell in hope,

27because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.

28You have made known to me the paths of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence.’

29My brothers, one can confidently say to you about the patriarch David that he died and was buried, and his tomb is in our midst to this day. 

30But since he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne,

31he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that neither was he abandoned to the netherworld nor did his flesh see corruption.

32God raised this Jesus; of this we are all witnesses. 

33Exalted at the right hand of God, he received the promise of the holy Spirit from the Father and poured it forth, as you (both) see and hear.

34For David did not go up into heaven, but he himself said:
‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand

35until I make your enemies your footstool.”’

36Therefore let the whole house of Israel know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
37Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and they asked Peter and the other apostles, “What are we to do, my brothers?”

38Peter [said] to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the holy Spirit.

39For the promise is made to you and to your children and to all those far off, whomever the Lord our God will call.”

40He testified with many other arguments, and was exhorting them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.”

41Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day.

Chapter 15:1-17
The Vine and the Branches

1 “I am the true vine,* and my Father is the vine grower.

2He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit. 

3You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.

4Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. 

5I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. 

6 Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned.

7If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.

8By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.

9As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love.

10If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 

11“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.

12This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.

13 No one has greater love than this,j to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 

14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 

15I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.

16It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

17This I command you: love one another.

1 Peter
Chapter 3:8-12
Christian Conduct

8Finally, all of you, be of one mind, sympathetic, loving toward one another, compassionate, humble. 

9Do not return evil for evil, or insult for insult; but, on the contrary, a blessing, because to this you were called, that you might inherit a blessing.

“Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep the tongue from evil
and the lips from speaking deceit,

11must turn from evil and do good,
seek peace and follow after it.

12For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears turned to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against evildoers.”

Chapter 15:18-27
The World’s Hatred

18 If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first.

19If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.

20Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

21And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me.

22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin; but as it is they have no excuse for their sin.

23Whoever hates me also hates my Father.

24If I had not done works among them that no one else ever did, they would not have sin; but as it is, they have seen and hated both me and my Father.

25But in order that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, ‘They hated me without cause. 

26“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me.

27And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.

Chapter 51
The Miserere: The Prayer for Repentance

3Have mercy on me, God, in accord with your merciful love;
in your abundant compassion blot out my transgressions.

4Thoroughly wash away my guilt;
and from my sin cleanse me.

5For I know my transgressions;
my sin is always before me.

6Against you, you alone have I sinned;
I have done what is evil in your eyes
So that you are just in your word,
and without reproach in your judgment.

7Behold, I was born in guilt,
in sin my mother conceived me.

8Behold, you desire true sincerity;
and secretly you teach me wisdom.

9Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

10You will let me hear gladness and joy;
the bones you have crushed will rejoice.


11Turn away your face from my sins;
blot out all my iniquities.

12A clean heart create for me, God;
renew within me a steadfast spirit.

13Do not drive me from before your face,
nor take from me your holy spirit.

14Restore to me the gladness of your salvation;
uphold me with a willing spirit.

15I will teach the wicked your ways,
that sinners may return to you.

16Rescue me from violent bloodshed, God, my saving God,
and my tongue will sing joyfully of your justice.

17Lord, you will open my lips;
and my mouth will proclaim your praise.

18For you do not desire sacrifice or I would give it;
a burnt offering you would not accept.

19My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit;
a contrite, humbled heart, O God, you will not scorn.


EFESO 4:17-18  5:15-17 HEBREWS 4"7

17Sa pangalan ng Panginoon, ito ang sinasabi ko sa inyo: huwag na kayong mamuhay tulad ng pamumuhay ng mga walang pananampalataya sa Diyos. Walang kabuluhan ang kanilang iniisip, 18at wala silang pang-unawa. Dahil sa kanilang kamangmangan at katigasan ng ulo, wala silang bahagi sa buhay na kaloob ng Diyos.
15Kaya't mag-ingat kayo kung paano kayo namumuhay. Mamuhay kayong tulad ng matatalino at di tulad ng mga mangmang. 16Samantalahin ninyo ang bawat pagkakataon na kayo'y makagawa ng mabuti sapagkat punung-puno ng kasamaan ang daigdig ngayon. 17Huwag kayong maging hangal. Unawain ninyo kung ano ang kalooban ng Panginoon.



"Tinatawag kayo ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ng Mabuting Balitang ipinahahayag namin sa inyo, upang makasama sa kaluwalhatian ng ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo."
