Och berätta om den vackraste gåvan jag fått: Jesus
”Han har frälst oss från mörkrets välde och fört oss in i sin älskade Sons rike. I honom är vi friköpta och har fått förlåtelse för våra synder.” Kol 1:13-14
”Ni som var döda på grund av era överträdelser och er oomskurna natur, också er har han gjort levande med Kristus. Han har förlåtit oss alla överträdelser och strukit ut det skuldebrev som med sina krav vittnade mot oss. Det har han tagit bort genom att spika fast det på korset.” /Kol 2:13-15
”Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” /Isaiah 53
”For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”/John 3:16
“I asked Jesus, ‘How much do you love me?’ And Jesus said, ‘This much.’ Then He stretched out His arms and died.” – Unknown
”God is our refuge and strength,an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day…
…He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”/Psalm 46
Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
”When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”/Psalms 8
”You surround me with your song
You sing over me.
Songs of joy rooting in my heart
Makes my heart bubbeling – Wow, that I am loved by you!
And to know that you love me,
This, I can’t contain -I just have to bring it all back to you!”
”Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” /Jesus in John 7:38
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.” /Isaiah 55:1
”The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” /Isaiah 58:11
”For you created my inmost being you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well!
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand when I awake, I am still with you.” /Psalms 139
