For you need patience, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
Because he himself was tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested.
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with gladness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful.
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Indeed, the word of God is living and active;…it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe, for indeed God is a consuming fire.
…and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross.

attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
