“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the [WORD OF FAITH], which we [PREACH]; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt [BELIEVE] in thine heart that god hath raised him from the dead, thou [SHALT BE SAVED]. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto [SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).
“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are [SAVED] it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19).
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the [FAITH]; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:24-29).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’” (Matthew 16:24). “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me” (Matthew 10:38).
