Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
