You are not to serve any other gods before Me. You are not to make any idol or image of other gods. In fact, you are not to make an image of anything in the heavens above, on the earth below, or in the waters beneath. You are not to bow down and serve any image, for I, the Eternal your God, am a jealous God. As for those who are not loyal to Me, their children will endure the consequences of their sins for three or four generations.
Listen, open your ears, harness your desire to speak, and don’t get worked up into a rage so easily, my brothers and sisters.
Father God, we thank You because You will not disappoint anyone who places their trust in You.
Yes, the Scriptures say, “Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disappointed.” It says this because there is no difference between those who are Jews and those who are not. The same Lord is the Lord of all people. And He richly blesses everyone who looks to Him for help. Yes, “everyone who trusts in the Lord will be saved.”
1 Corinthians 11:1
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way.
So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man. The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
