2 Thessalonians 1:11
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin [whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful].
2 Timothy 2:15
Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. Psalms 103:21
Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, all you His hosts, you His ministers who do His pleasure. Psalms 111:2
The works of the Lord are great, sought out by all those who have delightful pleasure in them. Philippians 2:13
[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
2 Timothy 3:7
weak people will listen to anybody who will teach them
they are forever inquiring and getting information, but are never able to arrive at a recognition and knowledge of the Truth.
