|So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
|I Corinthians 9:24-27
|[9:24] Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. [9:25] And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. [9:26] I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: [9:27] But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
|I Corinthians 15:32
|If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
|And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
|Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
|For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
|Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
|[3:13] Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, [3:14] I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
|I Timothy 6:12
|Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
|II Timothy 4:7
|I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
|But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
|Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
|I Peter 4:4
|Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
