The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1That in his assured hope of immortal glory,
9and in expectation of it, and of the general judgment, he labours to keep a good conscience;
12not that he may herein boast of himself,
14but as one that, having received life from Christ, endeavours to live as a new creature to Christ only,
18and by his ministry of reconciliation, to reconcile others also in Christ to God.
