The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.
“Moreover the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will enter and set this city on fire and burn it, with the houses where people have offered incense to Baal on their roofs and poured out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger.
Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
1 Peter 2:1
Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.
to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life;
But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.
Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth;
And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end,
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.
