The Example of Jesus
1 Wherefore, let us also, seeing that we are compassed with so great a cloud of witnesses, cast away everything that presseth down, and the sin that hangeth so fast on, let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, and despised the shame, and is set at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider therefore him that endured such speaking against of sinners, lest ye should be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And ye have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither faint when thou art rebuked of him.
6 For whom the Lord loveth, he chasteneth, and he scourgeth every son that he receiveth;
7 If ye endure chastening, God offereth himself unto you as unto sons; for what son is it whom the father chasteneth not?
8 If therefore ye be without correction, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Moreover we have had the fathers of our bodies which corrected us, and we gave them reverence; should we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, that we might live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure, but he chasteneth us for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
11 Now no chastising for the present seemeth to be joyous, but, grievous; but afterward, it bringeth the quiet fruit of righteousness, unto them which are thereby exercised.
12 Wherefore lift up your hands which hang down, and your weak knees,
13 And make straight steps unto your feet, lest that which is halting, be turned out of the way, but let it rather be healed.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
