Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
For we walk by faith, not by sight:
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
II Corinthians 5:7-8
That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God forever.
