"...why are you doing this?
We too are only men, human like you.
We are bringing you good news,
telling you to turn from these worthless things
to the living God,
who made heaven and earth and sea
and everything in them."
- Acts 14:15 NIV
"God did this so that,
by two unchangeable things
in which it is impossible for God to lie,
we who have fled to take hold of the hope
offered to us may be greatly encouraged.
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul,
firm and secure."
- Hebrews 6:18,19 NIV
"But let us who live in the light be clearheaded,
protected by the armor of faith and love,
and wearing as our helmet
the confidence of our salvation."
- 1 Thessalonians 5:8 NLT
"So do not throw away your confidence;
it will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere
so that when you have done the will of God,
you will receive what he has promised."
- Hebrews 10:35,36 NIV
