"Ako ang ilaw ng sanlibutan.  Ang sumunod sa akin ay magkakaroon ng ilaw na nagbibigay buhay, at di na lalakad sa kadiliman." John 8:12

"Mga anak, huwag kayong padaya kaninuman! Ang sinumang gumagawa ng matuwid ay matuwid, katulad ni Cristo.  Ang nagpapatuloy sa pagkakasala ay kampon diablo, At naparito ang Anak ng Diyos upang wasakin ang mga gawa ng diyablo." 1John 3:7-8

"Sapagka't kamatayan ang dulot ng kasalanan, ngunit ang kaloob ng Diyos ay buhay na walang hanggan sa pamamagitan ni Cristo Jesus na ating panginoon." Romans 6:23

"Mga minamahal, magibigan tayo, sapagkat mula sa Diyos ang pag-ibig.  Ang bawat umiibig ay anak ng Diyos, at kumikilala sa Diyos." 1John 4:7

"Mga anak, huwag tayong umibig sa pamamagitan ng salita o wika lamang.  Ipakita natin ang tunay na pag-ibig sa pamamagitan ng gawa." 1John 18

"Huwag kayong magsiraan, mga kapatid.  ang namumula o humahatol sa kanyang kapatid ay namumula o humahatol sa kautusan. At kung hinahatulan mo ang kautusan, hindi ka na isang tagatupad ng katususan kundi hukom. Iisa ang nagbigay ng Kautusan at siya rin ang hukom.  Tanging siya ang may kapangyarihang magligtas at pumuksa.  Ngunit ikaw sino ka para humatol sa inyong kapwa?" James 4:11-12

"Bigyan nawa kayo ng matatag na kalooban upang inyong maipahayag at maisagawa ang lahat ng mabuti." 2Thessalonians 2:17

"Magbago na kayo ng diwa at pag-iisip; at ang dapat makita sa inyo'y ang bagong pagkatao na nilikhang kalarawan ng Diyos, kalarawan ng kanyang katuwiran at kabanalan. Dahil dito, itakwil na ng bawat isa ang kasinungalingan, at lahat ay magsalita ng katotohanan sa kanyang kapatid, sapagkat tayo'y bahagi ng iisang katawan." "Huwag ninyong bigyan ng pagkakataon ang diyablo" Ephesians 4:23-25, 27 

Ang nagppatuloy ng paggagawa ng mabuti sa paghahangad ng karangalan, kadakilaan at kawalang-kamatayan ay bibigyan ng buhay na walang hanggan."  Romans 2:7

Chapter 8:12-20
The Light of the World

12Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

13So the Pharisees said to him, “You testify on your own behalf, so your testimony cannot be verified.

14Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I do testify on my own behalf, my testimony can be verified, because I know where I came from and where I am going. But you do not know where I come from or where I am going.

15You judge by appearances, but I do not judge anyone.

16And even if I should judge, my judgment is valid, because I am not alone, but it is I and the Father who sent me.

17Even in your law it is written that the testimony of two men can be verified.

18I testify on my behalf and so does the Father who sent me.”

19So they said to him, “Where is your father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”

20He spoke these words while teaching in the treasury in the temple area. But no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

1 John
Chapter 3:4-18
Avoiding Sin

4Everyone who commits sin commits lawlessness, for sin is lawlessness.

5You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.

6No one who remains in him sins; no one who sins has seen him or known him. 

7Children, let no one deceive you. The person who acts in righteousness is righteous, just as he is righteous. 

8Whoever sins belongs to the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. Indeed, the Son of God was revealed to destroy the works of the devil.

9No one who is begotten by God commits sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot sin because he is begotten by God.

10In this way, the children of God and the children of the devil are made plain; no one who fails to act in righteousness belongs to God, nor anyone who does not love his brother. 

11 For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another,

12unlike Cain who belonged to the evil one and slaughtered his brother. Why did he slaughter him? Because his own works were evil, and those of his brother righteous.

13Do not be amazed, [then,] brothers, if the world hates you.

14We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. Whoever does not love remains in death.

15Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.

16The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

17If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him?

18Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.

Chapter 6:1-23
Freedom from Sin; Life in God

1 What then shall we say? Shall we persist in sin that grace may abound? Of course not!
2How can we who died to sin yet live in it?

3Or are you unaware that we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

4We were indeed buried with him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live in newness of life. 

5For if we have grown into union with him through a death like his, we shall also be united with him in the resurrection.

6We know that our old self was crucified with him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin.

7For a dead person has been absolved from sin. 

8If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.

9We know that Christ, raised from the dead, dies no more; death no longer has power over him.

10As to his death, he died to sin once and for all; as to his life, he lives for God.

11Consequently, you too must think of yourselves as [being] dead to sin and living for God in Christ Jesus. 

12 Therefore, sin must not reign over your mortal bodies so that you obey their desires.

13And do not present the parts of your bodies to sin as weapons for wickedness, but present yourselves to God as raised from the dead to life and the parts of your bodies to God as weapons for righteousness.

14For sin is not to have any power over you, since you are not under the law but under grace. 

15What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? Of course not!

16Do you not know that if you present yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

 17But thanks be to God that, although you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient from the heart to the pattern of teaching to which you were entrusted.

18Freed from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness. 

19I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your nature. For just as you presented the parts of your bodies as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness for lawlessness, so now present them as slaves to righteousness for sanctification. 

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free from righteousness.

21But what profit did you get then from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.

22But now that you have been freed from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit that you have leads to sanctification, and its end is eternal life.

23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John
Chapter 4:7-21
God’s Love and Christian Life

7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. 

8Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. 

9In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.

10In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.

11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another. 

12No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us. 

13 This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us, that he has given us of his Spirit. 

14Moreover, we have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as savior of the world. 

15Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God.
16We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us. 
God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him. 

17In this is love brought to perfection among us, that we have confidence on the day of judgment because as he is, so are we in this world.

18There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. 

19We love because he first loved us. 

20If anyone says, “I love God,” but hates his brother, he is a liar; for whoever does not love a brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.

21This is the commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

1 John
Chapter 3:18
Avoiding Sin

18Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.

Chapter 4:1-12
Causes of Division

1Where do the wars and where do the conflicts among you come from? Is it not from your passions that make war within your members?

2You covet but do not possess. You kill and envy but you cannot obtain; you fight and wage war. You do not possess because you do not ask. 

3You ask but do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 

4Adulterers! Do you not know that to be a lover of the world means enmity with God? Therefore, whoever wants to be a lover of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

5Or do you suppose that the scripture speaks without meaning when it says, “The spirit that he has made to dwell in us tends toward jealousy”?

6But he bestows a greater grace; therefore, it says:
“God resists the proud,
but gives grace to the humble.”

7So submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you of two minds.

9Begin to lament, to mourn, to weep. Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into dejection. 

10Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you. 

11Do not speak evil of one another, brothers. Whoever speaks evil of a brother or judges his brother speaks evil of the law and judges the law. If you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 

12There is one lawgiver and judge who is able to save or to destroy. Who then are you to judge your neighbor?

2 Thessalonians
Chapter 2:1-17
Christ and the Lawless One

1We ask you, brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling with him,

2not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed either by a “spirit,” or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand.

3Let no one deceive you in any way. For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one doomed to perdition, 

4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god— 

5do you not recall that while I was still with you I told you these things?

6And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his time. 

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. 

8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord [Jesus] will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming,

9the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie,

10and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved. 

11Therefore, God is sending them a deceiving power so that they may believe the lie,
12that all who have not believed the truth but have approved wrongdoing may be condemned. 

13But we ought to give thanks to God for you always, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in truth.

14To this end he has [also] called you through our gospel to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours. 

16May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, 

17encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.

Chapter 4:17-32
Renewal in Christ

17So I declare and testify in the Lord that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds;

18darkened in understanding, alienated from the life of God because of their ignorance, because of their hardness of heart,

19they have become callous and have handed themselves over to licentiousness for the practice of every kind of impurity to excess.

20That is not how you learned Christ, 

21assuming that you have heard of him and were taught in him, as truth is in Jesus, 

22that you should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires,

23and be renewed in the spirit of your minds,
24and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth.

Rules for the New Life
25Therefore, putting away falsehood, speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

26Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun set on your anger,

27and do not leave room for the devil.

28The thief must no longer steal, but rather labor, doing honest work with his [own] hands, so that he may have something to share with one in need.

29No foul language should come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for needed edification, that it may impart grace to those who hear.

30And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, with which you were sealed for the day of redemption. 

31All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice.

32[And] be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

Chapter 2:1-11 God’s Just Judgment

1 Therefore, you are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment. For by the standard by which you judge another you condemn yourself, since you, the judge, do the very same things.

2We know that the judgment of God on those who do such things is true.

3Do you suppose, then, you who judge those who engage in such things and yet do them yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God?

4Or do you hold his priceless kindness, forbearance, and patience in low esteem, unaware that the kindness of God would lead you to repentance?

5By your stubbornness and impenitent heart, you are storing up wrath for yourself for the day of wrath and revelation of the just judgment of God, 6e who will repay everyone according to his works:

7eternal life to those who seek glory, honor, and immortality through perseverance in good works,

8but wrath and fury to those who selfishly disobey the truth and obey wickedness.

9Yes, affliction and distress will come upon every human being who does evil, Jew first and then Greek.

10 But there will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good, Jew first and then Greek.

11 There is no partiality with God.


Chapter 16:1-2,11
God the Supreme Good

1 A miktam of David. Keep me safe, O God;
in you I take refuge.

2I say to the LORD,
you are my Lord,
you are my only good.

11You will show me the path to life,
abounding joy in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever.


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."
