So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but
you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure,
being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
In Him you also are being built together into a
dwelling place for God by the Spirit.  (Ephesians 2:19-22, ESV)

Suggested songs

15) By The Mercies Of God   (based on Romans 12:1-2, NASB)    Video     Chords

By the mercies of God I present my body
A living, holy sacrifice My spiritual service of worship
May I not be conformed to this world
But be transformed by the renewing of my mind
That I may prove what the will of God is
That which is good and acceptable and perfect


16)   Keep This Book   (Joshua 1:8, NIV)   Video     Chords

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; 
meditate on it day and night,
so that you may be careful to do
ev'rything written in it.

Then you will be prosperous and successful.


17)   Like  Newborn Babies  (1 Peter 2:2-3, NIV)    Video     Chords

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, 
so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 
now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.


18)   I Urge You   (Ephesians 4:1-6, NIV)   Video     Chords

 As a prisoner for the Lord, then,
I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient,
bearing with one another in love.

Make every effort to keep the unity 
of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 
There is one body and one Spirit,
just as you were called to one hope when you were called;
one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God
and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.


19)   The Fruit Of The Spirit (based on Galatians 5:22-23, KJV/ESV)    Video     Chords

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
Patience, kindness and goodness
Gentleness, self-control


20)   Let Us Consider  (Hebrews 10:24-25, NIV)    Video     Chords

Let us consider how we may spur
one another on toward love and good deeds.
not giving up meeting together, 
as some are in the habit of doing,
but encouraging one another—
and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


21)   What Does The Lord Require?   (Micah 6:8,  ESV)   Video     Chords

 He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you,
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?


Alternate choices

For I Know  (Jeremiah 29:11-12, NIV)    Video     Chords

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me
and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”


God Hath Not Given Us   (2 Timothy 1:7,  KJV)    Video     Chords

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of pow'r, and of love, and of a sound mind,


If We Walk In The Light  (based on I John 1:5-7)    Video     Chords

If we walk in the light as He is in the light
We have fellowship with one another.
God is light, in Him there is no darkness at all
