13 Come, now, you who say, "To-day or to-morrow we will go to such a city and spend a year and do business and make money,"
14 though you do not know what your life will be like on the morrow. For you are a vapor that appears for a little while and then disappears.
15 You should rather say, "If the Lord wills it, we shall live and do this or that."
16 But now you glory in bragging. All such glorying is evil.
17 If any one, then, knows how to do good and is not doing it, he is committing sin.
For they for a few days disciplined us as seemed good to them, but he for our profit, that we may share his holiness.
All discipline for the time being seems not joyous but grievous, but afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have passed through its training.
Above all these, clothe yourselves with love, which is the perfect bond of union.
Let the peace of Christ be umpire in your hearts. For this you were called into one body. And be thankful.
12 Not that I have already obtained it or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of that for which I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I do not consider myself yet to have laid hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and stretching forward to what is in front
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us all who are full grown think in this way. If in anything you think differently, even that God will reveal to you,
So if any one is in Christ he is a new creature. The old things have passed away, they have become new.
Brethren, I do not consider myself yet to have laid hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and stretching forward to what is in front
I press toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead \'97
