But give honour to Christ in your hearts as your Lord; and be ready at any time when you are questioned about the hope which is in you, to give an answer in the fear of the Lord and without pride;
1 Peter 3:15
That he might make them free who were under the law, and that we might be given the place of sons.
He who gives you the Spirit, and does works of power among you, is it by the works of law, or by the hearing of faith?
For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 – WEB
I have been put to death on the cross with Christ; still I am living; no longer I, but Christ is living in me; and that life which I now am living in the flesh I am living by faith, the faith of the Son of God, who in love for me, gave himself up for me.
For where two or three are come together in my name, there am I among them.
Which is not another sort: only there are some who give you trouble, desiring to make changes in the good news of Christ.
