28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God
5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are living the life of trust. Test yourselves.
Don’t you realize that Yeshua the Messiah is in you? — unless you fail to pass the test.
5 Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it.
Test and prove yourselves [not Christ]. Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?
23 If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend.
24 And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
25 For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force],
26 And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground,
27 And then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases—he knows not how.
28 The earth produces [acting] by itself—first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
29 But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he [f]sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the sickle, because the harvest stands ready.
20 he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
