Flashcards in Practical Applications Deck (22):
1 Timothy 4:12
Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for other believers in your speech, behavior, love, faithfulness, and purity.
1 Timothy 4:7-8
Do not have anything to do with godless myths and fables of old women. Instead, train yourself to be godly. Physical exercise is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the dark world, and spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realm. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm, therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and with your feet fitted with teh readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish flaming arrows of the evil one, also take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
You must understand this, my dear brothers. Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. For human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character - hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit whom he has given to us.
2 Timothy 1:6-7
For this reason, I remind you to fan into flames the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of timidity but one of power, love, and self-discipline.
For if anyone thinks he is something when he is really nothing, he is only deceiving himself. Each person must examine his own actions, and then he can take pride about his own accomplishments without comparing himself to somebody else. For everyone must carry his own load.
1 Peter 1:13-16, Leviticus 11:44-45, 19:2, 20:7
Therefore, prepare your minds for action, be self-controlled, and set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus, the Messiah, is revealed. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. Instead, be holy in every aspect of your life, just as the one who called you is holy. For it is written, "You must be holy, because I am holy."
1 Peter 5:5-7
Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand so that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
1 Peter 2:15-17
For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil, live as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood of believers. Fear God. Honor the president.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
1 Corinthians 7:23-24
God bought you for a price; so do not become slaves of people. Brothers, each of you should remain in fellowship with God in the same situation that God called you to.
1 Corinthians 1:10

1 Corinthians 3:16-17
Surely you know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you! If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are his temple.
2 Corinthians 4:8-10
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; frustrated, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
Since you died with Christ to the basic principles of this world, then why, as if you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules — “Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch” (these are destined to perish with use)—according to human commands and teachings? These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.
But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame because they have nothing bad to say about us.
But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
