The Spirit of Jesus Christ
Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor
And though I give my body to be burned
And have not the reality of Christ
It profiteth me nothing
Christ suffers long and is kind: Christ envies not
Christ vaunts not himself and is not puffed up
Christ does not behave himself unseemly, He seeks not his own
Christ is not easily provoked, He thinks no evil
Christ rejoices not in iniquity, but He rejoices in the truth
Christ bears all things. Christ believes all things
Christ hopes all things. Christ endures all things
Christ never fails.
The Apostle Paul said... Christ liveth in me.
