A Call to Holiness
(Hebrews 12:14–17)

13Wherfore gyrde vp ye loynes of youre myndes be sober and trust perfectly on the grace yt is brought vnto you by the declaringe of Iesus Christ 14as obediet chyldre not facioninge youre selves vnto youre olde lustes of ignoracye: 15but as he which called you is holy eve so be ye holy in all maner of conuersacion 16because it is written. Be ye holy for I am holy.

17And yf so be yt ye call on the father which with out respecte of person iudgeth accordinge to every manes worke se yt ye passe the tyme of youre pilgremage in feare. 18For as moche as ye know how that ye were not redemed with corruptible sylver and golde from youre vayne conversacion which ye receaved by the tradicions of the fathers: 19but with the precious bloud of Christ as of a lambe vndefiled and withouten spot 20which was ordeyened before the worlde was made: but was declared in the last tymes for youre 21sakes which by his meanes have beleved on god that raysed him from deth and glorified him that youre fayth and hope myght be in god.

The Enduring Word
(Isaiah 40:6–8)

22And for as moche as ye have purified youre soules thorowe the sprete in obeyinge the trueth for to love brotherly withouten saynynge se that ye love one another with a pure hert fervently: 23for ye are borne a newe not of mortall seed but of immortall by the worde of god which liveth and lasteth for ever.

24For all flesshe is as grasse and all the glory of man is as the floure of grasse. The grasse widdereth and the flower falleth awaye

25but the worde of the lorde endureth ever. And this is the worde which by the gospell was preached amonge you.
