Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
