1 John 3:9
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning because they have been born of God.
Rid yourselves of all the offences you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit.
Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.
2 Corinthians 5:16-17
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here.
A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine.
Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one. Otherwise, they will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old.”
Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love LORD, and grant us your salvation.
