2 Corinthians 5:8
Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. ...
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Since that disciple was known to the high priest, he entered with Jesus into the court of the high priest, but Peter stood outside at the door. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the servant girl who kept watch at the door, and brought Peter in. The servant girl at the door said to Peter, “You also are not one of this man's disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.” Now the servants and officers had made a charcoal fire, because it was cold, and they were standing and warming themselves. Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.
And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
“I have said these things to you in figures of speech. The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures of speech but will tell you plainly about the Father.
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
