and certain of what we do not see.
We live by FAITH and not by sight.
II Corinthians 5:7
Without FAITH it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to Him must believe
that He exists and that He rewards those who
earnestly seek Him.
Make every effort to add to your FAITH goodness;
and to goodness, knowledge, and to knowledge, self-control;
and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness,
love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they
will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your
knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
II Peter 1:5-8
