there is so much to get out of this book. here's what i've loved today:

"obedience that comes from faith" - 1:5

"we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. and hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom He has given us." - 5:3-5

being a slave to righteousness: 6:15-23 [such an awesome section]

"count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to Him as instruments of righteousness. for sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace." - 6:11-14
