1 Timothy 4:10; Hebrews 12:4; 1 Timothy 6:12; 1 Corinthians 9:25

10 For to this end we toil and strive,1 because we have our hope set on the living God, qwho is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.

In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

12 mFight the good fight of the faith. nTake hold of the eternal life oto which you were called and about which you made pthe good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

25 Every uathlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we van imperishable.
