Romans 3:10-12 10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”
“Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.” -2 Timothy 2:3 “…join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life— not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace.” - 2 Timothy 1:8
“For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son…” - Romans 8:29

Deuteronomy 8:2-5 2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. 5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.
