2 Corinthians 8:14

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
1 Peter 2:12
Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
1 Timothy 6:12 - 13
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.
2 Corinthians 2:14
