But when he shall have put all things under him, then also the Son himself shall be subjected to him who put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

Now then no more I do this, but sin dwelling in me. For I know that there dwelleth not in me (that is, in my flesh) any good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

For in that he died, for sin he died once: but in that he liveth, he liveth to God. So also do ye account yourselves dead indeed to sin, but living unto God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Let not therefore sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the passions thereof. Neither present your members as weapons of unrighteousness for sin: but present yourselves to God, as alive from the dead, and your members as weapons of righteousness for God. For sin shall not hold dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine: so neither can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, this person beareth much fruit: because without me ye can do nothing. If any man abide not in me, he is cast out as a branch, and withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done for you.

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and as I abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may abide in you, and your joy may be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever things I command you. I no more call you servants; for the servant knoweth not what his master is doing: but I have called you friends because I have made known to you all things which I have heard of my Father. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you that ye should go forth and bear fruit, and that your fruit should be permanent: that so whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have elected you out of the world, for this very cause the world hateth you. Remember the word which I spake unto you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you also; if they have observed my words, they will observe your's also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. Had I not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin: but now they have no excuse for their sin.
