Keep awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak.
He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
In him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your own poets have said, “For we too are his offspring.”
Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, either can you unless you abide in me.
After two days he [The Lord] will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
