For the miracle of life:
You make us and sustain us
Day and night.
You grant us breath and shelter,
This Earth to cherish,
Your send your Son:
His teaching, flesh, and blood,
To show us all
Your deep, unfailing love.
You give us minds,
So we can grow like Christ,
And hearts, so we can grasp
For us, and see, at last,
What makes us whole:
One world, one human race,
One blood, one goal;
One peace, one truth, one love,
One God, one soul.
He himself gives life and breath to everything (Acts 17:25; NLT).
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16; NIV).
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5; NKJV).
This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many (Matthew 26:28; NLT).
From one *blood he made all nations to inhabit the whole earth, and he allotted the times of their existence and the boundaries of the places where they would live, so that they would search for God and perhaps grope for him and find him – though indeed he is not far from each one of us. For ‘In him we live and move and have our being’ (Acts 17:26-8; NRSV; *using the alternative reading for ‘ancestor’, which is ‘blood’).
The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).
The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV).
God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).
There is only one God (Mark 12:32; NLT).
God is Spirit (John 4:24; NLT).
We all share the same Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13; NLT).
