Romans 5:7 - 8
For one will scarcely die for a righteous person - though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die -
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do.
If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love.
For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.
