For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.
I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
being confident of this very thing, that he who has begun the good work in you will carry it on to completion on the day of Christ Jesus.
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you are sorrowful in trials of many kinds,
For I long to see you that I may impart to you some spiritual gift of grace in order that you may be strengthened,
that is, that I may be encouraged with you and by you through our mutual faith, yours and mine.
Therefore we are not downhearted, but even if our outward man is wasting away, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, as indeed you are doing.
we have been cheered, brethren, in regard to you, in all our straits and distresses by your faith.
