11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.Revelation 3:19;
19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.
1 In the beginning was the Word,a and the Word was with God,b and the Word was God.c 2 He was with God in the beginning.d 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.e
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very naturea God, did not consider equality with Godd something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very natureb of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to deathh— even death on a cross!
52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
16 For in him all things were created:k things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;l all things have been created through him and for him.m 17 He is before all things,n and in him all things hold together.
13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
