VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

VerseD: Nahum 1:7

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.

VerseD: John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

There is only one way to salvation, to reconciliation with God, and that is by grace through faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

VerseD: Matthew 3:8

Bear fruit in keeping with repentance.

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

The fight of faith is to glorify God. That means that we work out salvation and openly seek to grow in Christ to bring others to faith!
