[B]ut for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. We've been looking at the positive sides of these verbs,…
As the Scriptures say, "I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, chosen for great honor, and anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced." Yes, you who trust Him recognize the honor God has given Him. Interesting that where the ESV and the KJV use 'believe' the NIV and…
He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. Another example…
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” There is no pick and chose option; faith…
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. “Believe in Him" That's the belief that's part…
If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well...So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!...For every kind of beast…
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word. Lord, I need that hiding place, that place of peace and calmness. Help me, Lord.

You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see…

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you. A lot packed into this first sentence,…
And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect. Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every…
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in…
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving…
Accept my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me your rules. My freewill offering--not coerced, not forced, given freely and with thanksgiving. You are the Everlasting God, the Lord God, the Almighty. You move mountains and control the winds, yet You are the God of Love and Peace,…
