1 Samuel 20:20
I'll shoot three arrows to the side of the rock as though I were shooting at a target.
Indeed, you will make them retreat, when you aim your bow at their faces.
So what if I sin? What have I done against you, you observer of humankind? Why have you made me your target? Why burden yourself with me?
"He tore me apart when I was at ease; grabbing me by my neck, he shook me to pieces then he really made me his target.
But now that you have been freed from sin and have become God's slaves, the benefit you reap is sanctification, and the result is eternal life.
1 Corinthians 14:1
Keep on pursuing love, and keep on desiring spiritual gifts, especially the ability to prophesy.
1 Timothy 1:5
The goal of this instruction is love that flows from a pure heart, from a clear conscience, and from a sincere faith.
