Fueled by Faith

Bible verses I'm reflecting on:
"A new commandment I give unto you: that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples: if ye have love one for another.” -John 13:34-35
"Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance" -Romans 5:3
"Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture." -Psalm 37:3
"Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong." -1 Corinthians 16:13
"I can do all this through Him who gives me strength." -Philippians 4:13
