You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant – not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
