Dependency on God
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5)
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake (2 Corinthians 4:5).
in humility value others above yourselves (Philippians 2:3).
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself (Matthew 22:37—39)
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people (Ephesians 6:7).
so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:17).
let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).
encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
