Through [Christ] we have received grace and our apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles on behalf of his name. Romans 1.5 NET.

Paul writes to Roman Christians that everything comes through Jesus Christ. He works for faithful obedience to the Good News of Christ among all peoples. The phrase, “obedience of faith,” frames the letter (see Romans 16.26) and describes its subject.

When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus, Acts 19.5 NET.

Not every baptism is valid. This was true even in the first century and more so today. The evil one likes confusion.

I can't see to connect through Activitypub protocol. I think I have it activated. I'm doing something wrong, though.

Good morning to all, or whatever be your zone,
Be sure that God will grow the seed you've sown —
If sowing his Word, for empty it'll not return.
To trust the Lord each day, by doing, we learn.

Ok so there are many services that delete old posts automatically, and it's now a built-in feature.

But is there a service to unfollow accounts that have been inactive for X months, or that don't follow certain criteria or custom filters?

Jesus told them this parable, but they did not understand what he was saying to them. So Jesus said again, “I tell you the solemn truth, I am the door for the sheep.” John 10.6-7 NET.

Jesus’ teachings are so simple, they go over the head of people who are looking for politics, ritual, tradition, or other human constructs. The truth is that Jesus is Leader and Savior.

For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. Philippians 1.21 NET.

Faith in Christ is personal, as well as universal in its reversal of worldly values and in the banning of human fear and anxiety. The future is guaranteed. The present is given meaning. Life is fulfilling. The most wonderful relationship of all, with Christ, brings peace and stability.

And Jesus ordered them, “Watch out! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod!” Mark 8.15 NET.

Jesus warned his followers about false teachings. He used the figure of speech about yeast. His followers thought about bread. People still think with their stomachs, rather than their soul.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8.1 NET.

All people sin. Sin condemns—it separates us from God. God offers us forgiveness. The path to forgiveness is clear: it is in Christ. Scripture is clear on how to get there. And stay there.

The purpose of this enlightenment is that through the church the multifaceted wisdom of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 3.10 NET.

The church of Jesus Christ, the one and only church, Ephesians 4.4, is in the center of God’s great plan of salvation. It is the theme of this letter. The church is God’s shining star in the spiritual universe. He makes his purpose known through it — through his people.
