84:7They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
4:18But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
1:6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
1:9And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
1:10That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
1:11Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
3:12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
3:13Brethren, 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,
3:14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
3:15Let 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.
1:10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
1:11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
2:19And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
3:10Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?
3:12And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
3:13To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
1:3We 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;
6:1Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
6:2Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
6:3And this will we do, if God permit.
2:1Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
2:2As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
2:3If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
3:18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
