Romans 12:21

21 Do not let evil get the better of you; get the better of evil by doing good.

1 John 2:1-29

1 My dear children, I am writing this to you that you may not sin; but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father in Jesus Christ the just; 2 he is himself the propitiation for our sins, though not for ours alone but also for the whole world. 3 This is how we may be sure we know him, by obeying his commands. 4 He who says, 'I know him,' but does not obey his commands, is a liar and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever obeys his word, in him love to God is really complete. This is how we may be sure we are in him: 6 he who says he 'remains in him' ought to live as he lived. 7 Beloved, I am not writing you any new command, but an old command which you have had from the very beginning: the old command is the word you have heard. 8 And yet it is a new command I am writing to you — realized in him and also in yourselves, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. 9 He who says he is 'in the light' and hates his brother, is in darkness still. 10 He who loves his brother remains in the light — and in the light there is no pitfall; 11 but he who hates his brother is in darkness, he walks in darkness and does not know where he is going, for the darkness has blinded his eyes. 12 My dear children, I am writing to you, because your sins are forgiven for his sake: 13 fathers, I am writing to you, because you know him who is from the very beginning: young men, I am writing to you, because you have conquered the evil One. Children, I have written to you, because you know the Father: 14 fathers, I have written to you, because you know him who is from the very beginning: young men, I have written to you, because you are strong, and the word of God remains within you, and you have conquered the evil One. 15 Love not the world, nor yet what is in the world; if anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the proud glory of life, belongs not to the Father but to the world; 17 and the world is passing away with its desire, while he who does the will of God remains for ever. 18 Children, it is the last hour. You have learned that 'Antichrist is coming.' Well, but many antichrists have appeared — which makes us sure it is the last hour. 19 They withdrew from us, but they did not belong to us; had they belonged to us, they would have remained with us, but they withdrew to make it plain that they are none of us. 20 Now, you have been anointed by the holy One, and you all possess knowledge. 21 I am not writing to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and know that no lie has any connexion with the truth. 22 Who is the real liar? who but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is 'antichrist,' he who disowns the Father and the Son. 23 No one who disowns the Son can possess the Father: he who confesses the Son possesses the Father as well. 24 Let that remain in you which you learned from the very beginning; if what you learned from the very beginning remains with you, then you will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 Now this is what he has promised you, eternal life. 26 I am writing to you in this way about those who would deceive you, 27 but the unction you received from him remains within you, and you really need no teaching from anyone; simply remain in him, for his unction teaches you about everything and is true and is no lie — remain in him, as it has taught you to do. 28 Remain within him now, my dear children, so that when he appears we may have confidence, instead of shrinking from him in shame at his arrival. 29 As you know he is just, be sure that everyone who practises righteousness is born of him.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

1 PAUL and Silvanus and Timotheus, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2 grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 We are bound always to thank God for you, brothers — it is proper that we should, because your faith grows apace and your mutual love, one and all, is increasing. 4 So much so, that throughout the churches of God we are proud of you, proud of the stedfastness and faith you display through all the persecutions and the troubles in which you are involved. 5 They are proof positive of God's equity; you are suffering for the realm of God, and he means to make you worthy of it — 6 since God considers it but just to repay with trouble those who trouble you, 7 and repay you who are troubled (as well as us) with rest and relief, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven together with the angels of his power 8 in flaming fire, to inflict punishment on those who ignore God, even on those who refuse obedience to the gospel of our Lord Jesus, 9 men who will pay the penalty of being destroyed eternally from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, 10 when he comes to be glorified in his saints and marvelled at in all believers on that day (for our testimony has found confirmation in your lives). 11 In view of this we always pray for you, asking our God to make you worthy of his calling and by his power to fulfil every good resolve and every effort of faith, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you (and you glorified in him), by the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:7

7 (for I have to lead my life in faith, without seeing him):

Philippians 3:14

14 to press on to the goal for the prize of God's high call in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:18
