Quotes from the Bible

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened.

Matthew 7:7,8

~

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

MATTHEW 16:26

~

 You are the salt of the earth;
but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.

You are the light of the world.
A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

~

 In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the satisfaction for our sins.

John 4:19

~

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God;
and every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another,
God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

1 John 4:7, 11-12

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

1 John 2:15-16

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul.
He leads me in the right paths for His names sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:1-4
