|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 The lines of purpose in your lives never grow slack, tightly tied as they are to your future in heaven, kept taut by hope.
5 the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel
