  • Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)

  • But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)


  • Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 19:26 (NIV)


  • They triumphed over him
        by the blood of the Lamb
        and by the word of their testimony;

        as to shrink from death.Revelation 12:11 (NIV)
