My brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. – I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. – The gospel of Christ … is the power of God unto salvation.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. – I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. – We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
The joy of the LORD is your strength. – Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.

May 21 evening scripture and hymn
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. – He humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.
Messias … which is called Christ. – The LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives.
The last Adam was made a quickening spirit. The second man is the Lord from heaven. – My LORD and my God. – Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
