passage: Rom 6:11-6:17
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore
reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto
sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from
the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law,
but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under
the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye
yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God
be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from
the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
passage: Matt 8:14-8:23
And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother
laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left
her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come,
they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he
cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet,
saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Now when
Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart
unto the other side. And a certain scribe came, and said unto him,
Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus saith
unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests;
but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And another of his
disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.
