“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him” (John 1:18).
“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]” (John 3:16-17).
“[LOOK UNTO ME, AND BE YE SAVED], all the ends of the earth: for I [AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE]” (Isaiah 45:22).
“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).
JESUS. The ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: ‘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).
Now, therefore, as the only way to get the things that are eternal is through Jesus Christ who died for us; for this purpose then we should live unto him and not unto ourselves (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3:3).
