14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

LOVE

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Romans 5:8  But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

1 Corinthians 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


GRACE

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2 Corinthians 12:9
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Exodus 33:13
Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”

Psalm 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

PEACE

I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people his saints... Psalms 85:8

Now may the LORD of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way... 2 Thessalonians 3:16

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.  John 14:27

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7

The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.  Isaiah 32:17


WHEN YOU ARE LONELY

I will not leave you as orphans ; I will come to you.  John 14:18

Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.  Isaiah 58:9

"I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty."  2 Corinthians 6:18


PROTECTION

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.  Proverbs 18:10

He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.  Psalms 112:7

The LORD is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear?  Psalms 27:1

The Lord will keep you from all harm - he will watch over your life;  the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more.  Psalms 121:7,8


TRUST

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this.  Psalms 37:3-5

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.  Proverbs 3:5,6 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.  Psalms 46:1,2

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.  1 Peter 5:7

CALLED TO SERVE 

1 Corinthians 11:1 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.

Matthew 25:40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Matthew 7:12 (The Message)
"Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God's Law and Prophets and this is what you get.

Romans1: 8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.


MERCY

This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
