2 Peter 1:3 (NIV): His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
James 1:16-18 (NIV): Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.
James 2:14-17 (NIV): What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
1 Peter 4:19 (NIV): So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
2 Timothy 4:7-8 (NIV): I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day — and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
