In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was empty, a formless mass cloaked in darkness. And the Spirit of God was hovering over its surface.  Genesis 1:1-2 NLT

Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in understanding.  Proverbs 9:10 NLT

Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. 2 Corinthians 13:11 NKJV

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20

By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV

Pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit.  Ephesians 6:18a NLT

And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again.  Philippians 1:6 NLT

Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don’t think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing. Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had. Though He was God, He did not demand and cling to His rights as God. He made himself nothing; He took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form. And in human form He obediently humbled Himself even further by dying a criminal’s death on a cross. Because of this, God raised Him up to the heights of heaven and gave Him a name that is above every other name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Philippians 2:3-11 NLT

For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.  Philippians 4:13 NLT

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom. Colossians 3:16 NKJV

“Lord, in the beginning You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.” Hebrews 1:10 NLT

All glory to Him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to Him, in the beginning, now, and forevermore. Amen.  Jude 1:25 NLT
