If all these things are in you and are growing, they will help you to be useful and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But anyone who does not have these things cannot see clearly. He is blind and has forgotten that he was made clean from his past sins.
My brothers and sisters, try hard to be certain that you really are called and chosen by God. If you do all these things, you will never fall.
And you will be given a very great welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
