Papyrus 46 has 104 Scriptures listed in the index this reader chose to keep. It's either two or three generations after Jesus died and is marvelously intact. These three photographs are Romans 8 three pages of that Chapter complete and intact - amazing.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do.
By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh,
but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
12 So then, brothers and sisters, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.
34 Who is to condemn?
Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised — who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.[
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Thessalonians 5
God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Love your neighbor as yourself Is a difficult concept. We actually rarely loan our vehicles, much less buy one for our neighbor.
And God so understands us with love and care. Telling us to do unto others as we would have done to ourselves. He has to explain - it's a very Large Concept - to Love. And we snipe at the ones we love. We fail to extend to them even word courtesy sometimes to be funny or just self-centered. Oh - that's a bit close to my soul - where I dwell.
We need to have this explained. Love occurs at very basic level every day. God created the universe as His Word. And Words need sincerity, more than even a polite quality.
Warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.
Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
19 Do not quench the Spirit.
25 Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 26 Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss. 27 I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
Father God, prayer should be honest. I'm encouraged recently by taking the Judith and Frances MacNutt Healing video class. By Bishop Clark's Sermon on praying for God's Blessings in Powerful Prayer. For the Healing Class praying for a man with reoccurring cancer, just a few states away, as being discovered after a referring physician sent him to MD Anderson as - healed. For my thyroid throat to suddenly look youthful as a gift of God for praying Psalm 103 for eight years after feeling led to pray for that. For the Word of God to be fulfilled with help to be strong and ably do His Will with Love and Mercy.
For waking every day, praying for Edward to have his soul feed the physical diagnosis I wouldn't want to publicly pray for. (Because we are all funny and have privacy requirements.)
Thank You, Father, for the positive results there.
Thank you for the people I love being with to pray. And where we pray in Great faith, love and joy where I volunteer. The blessing of Jesus.
A Blessing of God encouraging me during family serious illness. Our household could use prayer. We have tremendous blessings to be grateful for every day. Needs we have for Love, health, dignity, compassion. Adult children trying their wings with a lot of shock at being adults. Good young men, learning how to develop their lives to become the men they aspire to be.
I'm asking prayers for my mother and mother-in-law in seasonal change. For once again being on the cusp of generational change first. For the Good God has given me in understanding love, faith and hope. For my cousin who asked me to pray for strength to do what God calls as His Word in great ability to have wisdom and love.. For my husband's family to go through the changes together.
For the dream I have for family growing and enlarging and loving with more compassion, words and actions. And the tree of faith that I have to see that grow as I age. Thank God for Love, HE provides blessings and we rejoice. In Jesus the Lord. Amen.
