1 Cor. 16:13: Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. (NLT)
Ps. 31:24: Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD.
Here is a negative way of saying the same thing: Isaiah 7:9b, “If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.” (NIV) In the Message Translation it reads, “If you don’t take your stand in faith, you won’t have a leg to stand on.”
1 Thes. 3:8: for now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord.
