I am the true vine,
And my Father is the husbandman.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit
He taketh away:
And every branch that beareth fruit,
He purgeth it,
That it may bring forth more fruit.
Now ye are clean through the word
Which I have spoken unto you.
Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
Except it abide in the vine;
No more can ye,
Except ye abide in me.
Herein is my Father glorified,
That ye bear much fruit;
So shall ye be my disciples.
Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
Holy and beloved,
Bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind,
Forbearing one another,
And forgiving one another,
If any man have a quarrel against any:
Even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And above all these things put on charity,
Which is the bond of perfectness.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
To the which also ye are called in one body;
And be ye thankful.
Let the word of Christ
Dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
Teaching and admonishing one another
In psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
Singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
Giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
1 Peter 4:11 KJV
If any man speak,
Let him speak as the oracles of God;
If any man minister,
Let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:
That God in all things may be glorified
Through Jesus Christ,
To whom be praise and dominion
For ever and ever.
