VerseD: Matthew 19:26

And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26, NASB

Salvation alone is found in Christ. We can never attain perfection nor God’s approval any other way.

VerseD: Philippians 1:6

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:6, ESV

We have the promise and reminder: We are made new, but our transformation is not complete until Jesus returns.

Until then, live out your salvation with fear and trembling.

VerseD: Romans 10:17

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

How can others come to faith in Christ unless we tell them?

The Father enjoys using His faithful children to spread the gospel of His Son.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17, ESV

In Christ, you start over. “Born again” means your soul is cleaned and renewed, and God is changing the way you think, feel, and act.

You are no longer the old you. Walk in the new.

VerseD: 1 John 4:15

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 4:15, ESV

If confess and believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God incarnate – God in the flesh, fully God and fully man – and that He lived a perfect life to die as our atonement on the cross and then rise back to life …

… you are saved. God dwells in you through the Holy Spirit to the glory of the Father.

VerseD: Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16, ESV

Do not be intimidated with sharing the gospel or that you believe.

You should be ready to explain why you believe, but it is okay (as a young Christian, at least) to admit you are not entirely sure of all of the reasons.

Just share how you came to faith.

VerseD: Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9, ESV

Stop trying to earn your salvation. It is an undeserved gift given freely to those who believe in the saving work of Christ through the cross.

Just believe it.

(Then do good works out of love.)
