    Romans 11:33-36 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
    For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
    Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
    For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

    MARK 8:35 for whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospels the same shall save it JOHN 5:34 but I receive not testimony from man but these things I say that you might be saved 2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all deceiveableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they received not the love of the truth that they might be saved
  • James
    Wonderful that it is Christ who saves through his death and resurrection. Although it is correct to be humble and sincere when coming to God through Christ the emphasis should solely be on his death and resurrection. Romans 9:16 “ So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” God bless you all and Praise to Almighty God for his grace and mercy.
  • MUKISA EMMA DANIEL
    PSALMS 119:105 SAYS," THAT THE WORD OF THE LORD IS THE LIGHT TO MY FEET"
    The Word of God has power to lead you to a place with a lot of joy and happinness thus paving way for thd chosen of the Lord to enter into his destination.
  • Kerrry A.Schlegel
    Salvation has to do with humility, and being sincere! God knows exactly what goes on in our hearts, and if one humbles themselves with God and are sincere about wanting to get saved, he will save that person! Amen.
