Some selected passages from- Acts 2:1-4, 44-47; Romans 8:31, 35, 37; 2nd Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 2:19-22
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from Heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
And all who believed were together and had all things in common; and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the Cornerstone, in Whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in Whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
If God is for us, who is against us? Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him Who loved us.
But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere.

Some selected passages from- Psalm 23:1; Isaiah 40:11; 53:6-7; Zechariah 10:2; John 1:29; 10:10-11; Hebrews 13:20-21; Revelation 7:17
Therefore the people wander like sheep; they are afflicted for want of a shepherd. He will feed His flock like a shepherd.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
Jesus said, "I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I Am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep."
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before his shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!"
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to springs of living water.
Now may the God of Peace Who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the Great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in you that which
is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to Whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Some selected passages from: 2nd Samuel 7:22; Psalms 94:14; 123:1; Matthew 22:37; John 20:21; Romans 1:16; 8:38-39; 1st Corinthians 2:2; Galatians 2:19
Wherefore Thou art great, O Lord God: for there is none like Thee, neither is there any god beside Thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
For the Lord will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.
Unto Thee lift I up mine eyes, O Thou that dwellest in the heavens.
Then said Jesus to them again, "Peace be unto you: as My Father hath sent Me, even so send I you."

Some selected passages from: Luke 10:25-28; John 15:13; Romans 5:8-9; 1st Corinthians 13:1,13; 1st John 4:7-8,10-11
Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is Love.
Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. But God shows His love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we are now justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God.
And behold, a lawyer stood up to put Jesus to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus said unto him, "What is written in the law? How do you read?"
And the lawyer answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
And Jesus said to him, "You have answered right; do this, and you will live."
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God loved us, we ought also to love one another.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

*Do You Really Care?
Night has fallen!
The universal love bond that whispers
in the ears of all humanity
Blows its winds across the deserts of barren hearts
and lonely souls of people
Too confused and afraid to reach out.
Don't be afraid!
To know your spirit is poor
opens your heart to Heaven's wealth.
The Holy Comforter passes nigh unto the sad.
The proud will fall and the humble made great.
Those who seek the Lord's work will find its beauty.
The Lord is merciful to the one who shows mercy.
If one keeps a pure heart, that one will see God.
The Father of the Prince of Peace adopts for His Own
those who make peace.
The desert sands may taunt the oasis,
But the Winds of Love fill the cups of the thirsty
with living water.
A new day is dawning--REJOICE!
