VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, ESV

Faith in Christ primarily comes from the preaching of the Gospel from the Scriptures.

Know the Gospel. Believe it. Share it with others that they may be saved.

VerseD: John 1:12

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
John 1:12, ESV

We may all be made in God’s image, but we are not all His children.

We become children of God by believing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God who takes away the sins of the world.

VerseD: 1 John 2:6

whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
1 John 2:6, ESV

How did Jesus walk?

He loved the lost, rebuked the religious haughty, and served all to the point of death.

Go and do likewise.

VerseD: 1 John 4:15

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

You cannot be a Christian and deny the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, that He was sent by the Father to save us.

VerseD: 2 Thessalonians 3:5

May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5, ESV

We come to Christ because the Holy Spirit draws us to Him.

Listen to the Spirit. Trust Christ in all things.

VerseD: Romans 10:10

For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Romans 10:10, ESV

Some confess without ever believing. Some believe and are not able to confess.

However, it does take faith, and we are commanded to share (if possible) that Jesus is our Redeemer and Lord. (Matthew 28:18-20)

VerseD: John 3:36

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
John 3:36, ESV

The hard truth is that full belief in Jesus means obedience to Jesus. It is not strictly about rules but knowing how He has said to love Him.
