and will do whatsoever you shall ask in my name. That the Father may be glorified in the Son,
whatsoever you shall ask in my name, I will do.
24 Do you not know that they who run a race, all run, but one only receives the prize? So run, that you may lay hold of the prize?
25 Now, every one who contends is temperate in all things: they, indeed, that they may receive a fading crown; but we, one that does not fade.
26 I, therefore, so run, as not out of view. So I fight, not as beating the air:
27 but, I mortify my body, and keep it in subjection; lest, perhaps, having proclaimed to others, I myself should not be accepted.
And whatever you do, work it from the soul, as to the Lord, and not to men:
for it is God who works effectually in you, both to will and to perform, on account of his benevolence.
I can do all things, through him who strengthens me.
Brethren, I count not myself to have laid hold of the prize; but one thing I do, forgetting the things behind, and stretching forth toward the things before,
I press on toward the mark, for the prize of the high calling of God, by Christ Jesus.
1 Since, then, we have so great a cloud of witnesses placed before us, laying aside every encumbrance, and the sin which easily entangles us, let us run, with perseverance, the race set before us;
2 looking to Jesus, the leader and perfecter of the faith; who, for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider him who, from sinners, endured such opposition against himself, lest, becoming discouraged in your minds, you grow weary;
Do not ask, therefore, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; live not in anxious suspense.
For all these things the Pagans seeks; whereas, your Father knows that you need them.
go, convert all the nations, immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit;
teaching them to observe all the things which I have commanded you: and behold, I am with you always, even to the conclusion of this state.
10 And, therefore, when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any one will not work, neither let him eat.
11 For we hear that there are some who still walk among you disorderly, not working at all, but prying into other people's affairs.
12 Now, them who are such, we command and beseech by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
13 And you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
