" Lift up the Cross ! Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation! "
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. ( Philippians 1:2 )
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. ( Isaiah 9:6 )
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. ( Isaiah 53:5 )
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
( Hebrews 13:20-21 )
