Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of eternal life to which you were called and about which you have made a good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you. I will praise your name, for you have accomplished wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
The greatest among you will be your servant.
Stop fighting, and know that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.
Consider it a great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness.
The fear of mankind is a snare, but the one who trusts in the Lord is protected.
Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love—but the greatest of these is love.
Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve others, as good stewards of the varied grace of God.
