And whatever you may ask in My name, this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you should ask anything in My name, I will do [it].
24 Do you not know that those running in a stadium all run, but one receives the prize? So run, in order that you may win.
25 And everyone who competes exercises self-control [in] all things. Now they [compete] in order that they may receive a perishable crown, but we [compete] [for ]an imperishable crown.
26 Therefore I run thus: not as without a goal, thus I box: not as one beating the air.
27 But I treat my body roughly, and I bring it into subjection, lest, having preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
And whatever you may do, work [it] from your soul, as to the Lord and not to men,
for it is God who is working in you, both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Brothers, I do not count myself to have laid hold; but one thing[ I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
I press toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
1 So therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every impediment, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
2 looking unto Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured [the] cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and discouraged in your souls.
And do not seek what you may eat or what you may drink, and do not be anxious.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after, but your Father knows that you need these things.
Go [therefore] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."Amen.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone is not willing to work, neither let him eat!
11 For we hear [that] some are walking among you in a disorderly way, not working at all, but being busybodies.
12 And to such [people] we command and urge by our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
13 But as for you, brothers, do not lose heart [in] doing good.
