Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
“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.”
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
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.
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an examplefor the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
