Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
C. God helped them live for the Lord. - L v. 31
