JESUS says: “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. If any man serve me, [LET HIM FOLLOW ME; AND WHERE I AM, THERE SHALL ALSO MY SERVANT BE]” (Matthew 12:24-26).
“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).
“The Lord knoweth them that are his” (2 Timothy 2:19).

“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).
“Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. [WHOSOEVER SHALL CONFESS THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD, GOD DWELLETH IN HIM, AND HE IN GOD]. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:13, 15-16).
“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another [DAILY], while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast [UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
