Hebrews 10: 19-26
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

    James 2: 14-19 (NIV)
    What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

    1 Corinthians 12: 12-20
    Christ is just like the human body—a body is a unit and has many parts; and all the parts of the body are one body, even though there are many. We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body, whether Jew or Greek, or slave or free, and we all were given one Spirit to drink. Certainly the body isn't one part but many. If the foot says, “ I'm not part of the body because I'm not a hand, ” does that mean it's not part of the body? If the ear says, “ I'm not part of the body because I'm not an eye, ” does that mean it's not part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, what would happen to the hearing? And if the whole body were an ear, what would happen to the sense of smell? But as it is, God has placed each one of the parts in the body just like he wanted. If all were one and the same body part, what would happen to the body? But as it is, there are many parts but one body.

    Mark 10: 46-52
    Jesus and his followers came into Jericho. As Jesus was leaving Jericho, together with his disciples and a sizable crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, Timaeus' son, was sitting beside the road. When he heard that Jesus of Nazareth was there, he began to shout, “ Jesus, Son of David, show me mercy!” Many scolded him, telling him to be quiet, but he shouted even louder,“ Son of David, show me mercy!”
    Jesus stopped and said, “Call him forward.”
    They called the blind man, “Be encouraged! Get up! He's calling you.”
    Throwing his coat to the side, he jumped up and came to Jesus.
    Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”
    The blind man said, “Teacher, I want to see.”
    Jesus said, “Go, your faith has healed you.” At once he was able to see, and he began to follow Jesus on the way.

    Luke 21: 1-4
    Looking up, Jesus saw rich people throwing their gifts into the collection box for the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow throw in two small copper coins worth a penny. He said, “I assure you that this poor widow has put in more than them all. All of them are giving out of their spare change. But she from her hopeless poverty has given everything she had to live on.”

    Colossians 3:15-17
    The peace of Christ must control your hearts—a peace into which you were called in one body. And be thankful people.
    The word of Christ must live in you richly. Teach and warn each other with all wisdom by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Whatever you do, whether in speech or action, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus and give thanks to God the Father through him.

    Colossians 4: 2-6, 18
    Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
    I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.

    Acts 26: 27-32
    King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets?
    I know you do.”
    Agrippa said to Paul, “Are you trying to convince me that, in such a short time, you've made me a Christian?”
    Paul responded, “Whether it is a short or a long time, I pray to God that not only you but also all who are listening to me today will become like me, except for these chains.”
    The king stood up, as did the governor, Bernice, and those sitting with them. As they left, they were saying to each other, “This man is doing nothing that deserves death or imprisonment.”
    Agrippa said to Festus, “This man could have been released if he hadn't appealed to Caesar.”
