New City Catechism Q. 3
Jesus Paid It All [Song]
 Praise the LORD!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.
 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the outcasts of Israel.
 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
 He determines the number of the stars;
he gives to all of them their names.
 Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
 The LORD lifts up the humble;
he casts the wicked to the ground.
 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make melody to our God on the lyre!
 He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares rain for the earth;
he makes grass grow on the hills.
 He gives to the beasts their food,
and to the young ravens that cry.
 His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,
 but the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,
in those who hope in his steadfast love.
 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion! (ESV)
New City Catechism Q. 3. http://newcitycatechism.com/new-city-catechism/#3
 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (ESV)
 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, (ESV)
1 Corinthians 10:3-4
 and all ate the same spiritual food,  and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. (ESV)
 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.  Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.  In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;  and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,  praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, (ESV)
 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,  with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,  eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism,  one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (ESV)
 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (ESV)
