“For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM shall not perish,
but have eternal life.”
[John 3:16]

“We know love by this (John 3:16),
that He (Jesus Christ) laid down His life for us;
and WE OUGHT TO lay down our lives for the brethren.
[1 John 3:16]

For by grace you have been saved THROUGH FAITH;
and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
NOT as a result of works,
so that no one may boast.
[Ephesians 2:8-9]
