Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! ~ 1 Chronicles 16:8-10 (ESV)

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. ~ (Galatians 6:1-2 ESV)
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh…If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. ~ (Galatians 5:16-26 ESV)
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. ~ (Galatians 5:1 ESV)

Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? ~ (Galatians 4:8-9 ESV)
So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. ~ (Galatians 4:7 ESV)
He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.” ~ (Luke 14:12-14 ESV)
Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. ~ (Galatians 3:23 ESV)
