Now to him who is able to establish you by my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ… to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive…
In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
God “will give to each person according to what he has done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.
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.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
