Two Simple Verses
16″God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.”
8″You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better than we deserve. This is God’s gift to you, and not anything you have done on your own. 9It isn’t something you have earned, so there is nothing you can brag about.”
