“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).
“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).
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine [HEART]. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine [HEART]” (Psalms 27:14, 37:4).
“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the [SALVATION] of the LORD” (Lamentations 3:25-26).
