Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
For with God nothing shall be impossible.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
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,
Righteousness guards the person of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.
The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
