Bible Verses for Tuesday July 19, 2011
Love in action and with truth

1 John 3:17,18 NIV
But my enemies are vigorous and strong,
And many are those who hate me wrongfully.
And those who repay evil for good,
They oppose me, because I follow what is good.
Do not forsake me, O LORD;
O my God, do not be far from me!
Make haste to help me,
O Lord, my salvation!
Psalm 38:19-22 NASB
The bloodthirsty hate the blameless,
But the upright seek his well-being.
A fool vents all his feelings,
But a wise man holds them back.

Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift:
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God
is the object of our faith; the only faith
that saves is faith in Him.
