"The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life."
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you."
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.
By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God's command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.
