Psalm 148:1-14  Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights!  2Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his host!  3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!  4 Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!  5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for he commanded and they were created.  6 He established them forever and ever; he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.  7 Praise the LORD from the earth, you sea monsters and all deeps,  8 fire and hail, snow and frost, stormy wind fulfilling his command!  9 Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars!  10 Wild animals and all cattle, creeping things and flying birds!  11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!  12 Young men and women alike, old and young together!  13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.  14 He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his faithful, for the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise the LORD!

 

Revelation 21:1-6   Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.  2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them;  4 he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.” 

5 And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”  6 Then he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life.”

 

John 13:31-35  31 When [Judas] had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.  32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once.  33 Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’  34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” 

 

John 10:22-30   22 At that time the festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter, 23and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon.  24 So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”  25Jesus answered, “I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me; 26 but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep.  27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.  28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.  29 What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand.  30 The Father and I are one.”
