Matthew 28:18-20

28:18 Then Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
28:20 teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Galatians 4:4-7

4:4 But when the appropriate time had come, God sent out his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
4:5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we may be adopted as sons with full rights.
4:6 And because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, who calls “Abba! Father!”
4:7 So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son, then you are also an heir through God.

1 Peter 2:21-25

2:21 For to this you were called, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving an example for you to follow in his steps.
2:22 He committed no sin nor was deceit found in his mouth.
2:23 When he was maligned, he did not answer back; when he suffered, he threatened no retaliation, but committed himself to God who judges justly.
2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we may cease from sinning and live for righteousness. By his wounds you were healed.
2:25 For you were going astray like sheep but now you have turned back to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.

Philippians 2:5-12

2:5 You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had,
2:6 who though he existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped,
2:7 but emptied himself by taking on the form of a slave, by looking like other men, and by sharing in human nature.
2:8 He humbled himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross!
2:9 As a result God exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name,
2:10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow – in heaven and on earth and under the earth –
2:11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
2:12 So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence

John 4:16-26

4:16 He said to her, “Go call your husband and come back here.”
4:17 The woman replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “Right you are when you said, ‘I have no husband,’
4:18 for you have had five husbands, and the man you are living with now is not your husband. This you said truthfully!”
4:19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I see that you are a prophet.
4:20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you people say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.”
4:21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
4:22 You people worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because salvation is from the Jews.
4:23 But a time is coming – and now is here – when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers.
4:24 God is spirit, and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
4:25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever he comes, he will tell us everything.”
4:26 Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am he.”

John 4:3-15

4:3 he left Judea and set out once more for Galilee.
4:4 But he had to pass through Samaria.
4:5 Now he came to a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the plot of land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.
4:6 Jacob’s well was there, so Jesus, since he was tired from the journey, sat right down beside the well. It was about noon.
4:7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me some water to drink.”
4:8 (For his disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies.)
4:9 So the Samaritan woman said to him, “How can you – a Jew – ask me, a Samaritan woman, for water to drink?” (For Jews use nothing in common with Samaritans.)
4:10 Jesus answered her, “If you had known the gift of God and who it is who said to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
4:11 “Sir,” the woman said to him, “you have no bucket and the well is deep; where then do you get this living water?
4:12 Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.”
4:13 Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again.
4:14 But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.”
4:15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”

John 21:15-19

21:15 Then when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these do?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus told him, “Feed my lambs.”
21:16 Jesus said a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus told him, “Shepherd my sheep.”
21:17 Jesus said a third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was distressed that Jesus asked him a third time, “Do you love me?” and said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus replied, “Feed my sheep.
21:18 I tell you the solemn truth, when you were young, you tied your clothes around you and went wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will tie you up and bring you where you do not want to go.”
21:19 (Now Jesus said this to indicate clearly by what kind of death Peter was going to glorify God.) After he said this, Jesus told Peter, “Follow me.”
