For we have become partners with Christ, if in fact we hold our initial confidence 1 firm until the end.
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end,
For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.
If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we're in this with Christ for the long haul.
For if we keep the substance of the faith which we had at the start, even till the end, we have a part with Christ;
For we have become partners of Christ, if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end.
For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,
we are made
of our confidence
