Guiding Scriptures

What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?  (Micah 6: 8)

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.  (John 13: 34-35)

God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.  (1 John 4: 16)

Now to God who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to God be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  (Ephesians 3: 20-21)
