Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sinsand live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
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.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
