And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the
Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish
but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to
condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John
The Apostle Peter: Then Peter,
filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and
elders of Israel: If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a
helpless man, by what means he has been made well, let it be known to
you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus
Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which
was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under
heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:8-12.
The Apostle Paul: Now hope does
not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our
hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For when we were still
without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely
for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone
would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in
that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then,
having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath
through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God
through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we
shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in
God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received
the reconciliation. Romans 5:5-11.
The Apostle Paul: For Christ
did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom
of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the
message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to
us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:17-18.
The Apostle Paul: But God, who
is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with
Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and
made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in
the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His
kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not
of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created
in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we
should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10.
The Apostle Paul: And I thank
Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me
faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a
blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy
because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was
exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However,
for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might
show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe
on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal,
invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and
ever. Amen. 1 Timothy 1:12-17.
The Apostle Paul: Remember that
Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according
to my gospel, 9for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the
point of chains; but the word of God is not chained. 10Therefore I
endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain
the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. This is a
faithful saying: For if we died with Him, we shall also live with Him.
If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also
will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny
Himself. 2 Timothy 2:8-13.
The Apostle Paul: But when the
kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by
works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy
He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the
Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ
our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become
heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7.
The Apostle John: If we receive
the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the
witness of God which He has testified of His Son. He who believes in
the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God
has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God
has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us
eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life;
he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5:9-12.
The Apostle Jude: But you,
beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the
Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy
of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 1:20-21.
