Luke 18:8 (NIV)
8 …I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
John 20:31 (NIV)
31 But these are written so that you may believe (and continue to believe) that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Then, by believing, (continuing to believe) you may have life through his name.
John 3:14-16 (NIV)
14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes (and continues to believe) may have eternal life in him.” 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes (and continues to believe) in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Galatians 1:6 (NCV)
6 God, by his grace through Christ, called you to become his people. So I am amazed that you are turning away so quickly and believing something different than the Good News.
1 Corinthians 3:10
10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.
49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for[a] a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized,(A) every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.(B) And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(C) 39 The promise is for you and your children(D) and for all who are far off(E)—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a](A) and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
Hebrews 10:25 (New Century Version)
25 You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing, but you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the day coming.
1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? 3 My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long “Where is your God?” 4 These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng.
11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
