- Be asking, and it shall be given you,
Be seeking, and ye shall find, -
Be knocking, and it shall be opened unto you.
For whosoever asketh receiveth,
And he that seeketh findeth, -
And to him that knocketh shall it be opened.
Or what man from among yourselves,
Whom his son shall ask for a loaf, -
A stone will give him?
Or a fish also shall ask, -
A serpent will give him?
Matt. 7: 7 - 10
And I commend to you Phoebe, our sister, -
Being a minister also of the assembly
which is in Cenchreae;
In order that ye may give her welcome in
the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints,
And stand by her in any matter
wherein she may have need of you;
For she also hath proved to be a
defender of many, and of my own self.
Romans 16: 1 -2
Until we all advance -
Into the oneness of the faith, and the
personal knowledge of the Son of God,
Into a man of full-growth,
Into the measure of the stature of the
fulness of the Christ;
That we may no longer be infants - Billow-
tossed and shifted round with every wind
of teaching, - In the craft of men,
In knavery suited to the artifice of error.
Eph. 4: 13 -14
