These are certain quotes that I find hold much weight. I have borrowed this from my Facebook page, since most of my blog readers don’t know me from Facebook:
Here they are:
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”-The Apostle Paul, Romans 6:23.
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”-The Apostle Paul, Romans 5:8
“For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”-John the Disciple whom Jesus loved, John 3:16.
“But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”-The Apostle Paul, Romans 10:8-10
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”-The Apostle Paul, Romans 10:13.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”-The Apostle Paul, Romans 9:38-39.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”- The Apostle Paul, 1 Timothy 6:10.
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”-Psalmist, Psalms 37:4.

“…Like a rose trampled on the ground.
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all…”-Lyrics from the Michael W. Smith song “Above All” which describes how much Jesus Christ loves the church and what He went through that we may be saved.
