Inspired by the Bible:
John 15: 11-17 love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this than someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you… and below…
John 15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing, but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
Psalm 139: 1- 18 O Lord, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do]; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And You are intimately acquainted with all my ways.Even before there is a word on my tongue [still unspoken],Behold, O Lord, You know it all.You have enclosed me behind and before, And [You have] placed Your hand upon me.Such [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high [above me], I cannot reach it.Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there;If I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), behold, You are there.If I take the wings of the dawn,If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will take hold of me.If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me, And the night will be the only light around me,” Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You, But the night shines as bright as the day;Darkness and light are alike to You. For You formed my innermost parts; You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was being formed in secret,And intricately and skillfully formed [as if embroidered with many colors] in the depths of the earth. Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all writtenThe days that were appointed for me, When as yet there was not one of them [even taking shape]. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I could count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is new Creation, the old has passed away, behold the new has come.
