Gems from Lord Jesus Christ

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

And you shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.

And the second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than this.

Not everyone that says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but only he that does the will of my Father in heaven. On that day many will say, “Lord, Lord, have we not worked in your name? And in your name cast out evils? And in your name done many wonderful works?” And then I will say to them, “ I never knew you: You that work iniquity, depart from me.” Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine and follows them, I will compare him to a wise man, who has built his house upon a rock.

Heaven and earth will pass away: but my words will not pass away.

What I say to you, I say to all. Watch, watch and pray, lest you should be tempted. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Whosoever saves his life shall lose it:  and whosoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what is a man profited, if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

I and my Father are one. Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.
