Truly I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not come under judgment but has passed from death to life.
Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness—without it no one will see the Lord.
Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over—will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.
But if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed but let him glorify God in having that name.
And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment.
So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like someone looking at his own face in a mirror.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.
