Do your best to present yourself to God as one who surely knows and confidently walks like his son, Jesus Christ. As a believer, think of yourself with sober judgment but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline, one unafraid to endure the laughter and scoffs of the nonbeliever. In your resolve the word of God and work of Jesus will be made known. With all moral courage, the natural fruit of a trusting faith in God, you are one saved by grace. Just be yourself.
So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man. Acts 24:16
Because God has given me a special gift, I have something to say to everyone among you. Do not think you are better than you are. You must decide what you really are by the amount of faith God has given you. Romans 12:3
So stand strong, with the belt of truth tied around your waist and the protection of right living on your chest. Ephesians 6:14
God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
Make every effort to give yourself to God as the kind of person he will accept. Be a worker who is not ashamed and who uses the true teaching in the right way. 2 Timothy 2:15
