"If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed"
John 8.36

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
2 Peter 1.3-4

Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
John 5.19

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
John 10.10

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
John 14.12

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4.23

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Luke 4.18-19

But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
2 Corinthians 10.17
