The law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? – By him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
Forasmuch … as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren.

April 12 evening
All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
There is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. – There is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. – How can he be clean that is born of a woman?
Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
The LORD … hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. – Whom he justified, them he also glorified. – We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. – If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel.
Walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
