    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
    They already know monsters exist.
    We tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters can be killed.

    That is about not of the purification works when the people had to wash themselves.

    Do not just read the word do it.

    the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just
    for me, but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7-8)


    Those who eagerly wait for Jesus’ return have nothing to be ashamed of
    … because they have remained faithful and have been living righteously!

    Please note that Ephesians and Colossians were written only to “the faithful”.
    So really, all of the glowing descriptions, etc. of believers in those 2 epistles
    are only for "the faithful" followers of Jesus, i.e. those who love Him
    and who obey (keep) His commandments.
    It is so good to read you preaching obedience to Christ.

    From the scriptures, I see that the gift, the reward, the inheritance, the treasure, the crown, the promise…it is all eternal life in the kingdom of God.

    It is given to those who obey.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Do not just read the word do it.

    Then, off topic ...
    From the Scriptures, I see that the gift
    (as related to the Holy Spirit) actually is
    the baptism with the Holy Spirit
    (and not the initial infilling)!
    Yes, and it is also the Promise.
    Proven from the NT Scriptures.

    And I'm pleased that you see (correctly) that the crown means eternal life
    in these phrases: "the crown of life", "the crown of righteousness", etc.

    There are many levels of spiritual understanding not revealed to babes.
    Keep up the good work, brother.
    "Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey,
    you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether
    (slaves) of sin leading to (eternal) death, OR
    (slaves) of obedience leading to righteousness?" (Romans 6:16)
