"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:1-2
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharperthananytwo-edgedsword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of bothjoints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to presentyourselfapproved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accuratelyhandling the word of truth.
2 Corinthians 4:2-7 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
