These are the qualities you need, and if you have them in abundance, they will make you active and effective in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But if you do not have them, you are so shortsighted that you cannot see and have forgotten that you have been purified from your past sins.
So then, my friends, try even harder to make God's call and his choice of you a permanent experience; if you do so, you will never abandon your faith. a11
In this way you will be given the full right to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
