"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."Colossians 3:12-17 (via marcphun)

Mark 5:36
"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves."Romans 12:9-10

John 13:35
We are all undeserving, ill-deserving, hell-deserving sinners. “What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise…[we] are all under sin; As it is written, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE.” (Romans 3:9&10) We are all sinners. EVERY ONE OF US. God’s standard of “good” is high, and we have all broken His law. Lying, stealing, adultery, covetousness, ungratefulness… and the list goes on. Some erroneously think that salvation can be earned. “I’ll just do more good deeds,” says one man. But his is a false hope. We are not saved from God’s just judgement on the basis of our good outweighing our bad. No amount of good works can erase our sin record and gain us entrance into heaven. But there IS hope! The Bible tells us “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.” (Romans 5:8) “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) Mankind is saved from judgement and hell only one way— through faith in Jesus. “Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’” Jesus lived a sinless life. He kept God’s law perfectly. And as a result, he is the only truly “good person” to have ever walked the face of this earth. And through his death on the cross, he bore the wrath of God on behalf of sinful men. God is MERCIFUL and He will save to the uttermost those who come to Him through faith in Jesus. He takes our record of sin and wrong, and replaces it with the perfect, sinless record of His Son [Jesus]. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16)
