Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
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.
