  • Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation … .
  • He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

    Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

    “‘The stone that the builders rejected

    has become the cornerstone;

    this was the Lord’s doing,

    and it is marvelous in our eyes’?
  • teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
  • But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
