Hebrews 4:12–13 (NLT)
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-
edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It

from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to
whom we are accountable.
John 1:1–2,14 (NLT)

Romans 3:21–24 (NLT)
But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the
requirements of the law...We are made right with God by placing our faith in
Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.

“Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear my voice

the Spirit is saying now to the churches.”
1 Peter 3:7 (NIV)

Partner with Holy Spirit
Ezekiel 36:26–28 (MSG)
I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from
your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my
Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!
Romans 8:26–28 (TLB)
The Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t
even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy
Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words. And
the Father who knows all hearts knows, of course, what the Spirit is saying as he
pleads for us in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that all that happens
to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.
