Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love.
(1 Corinthians 16:13-14)
Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
(1 John 3:2)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
