Grace, Growth In
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
2 Thessalonians 1:3
Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
1 Thessalonians 4:1
Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
2 Peter 1:5
The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall e stronger and stronger.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
