“[FOR THERE IS ONE GOD, AND ONE MEDIATOR] between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).
To obtain LIFE is to inherit ETERNAL LIFE for which human beings must REPENT AND BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST! “[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).

“For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ [FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it [IS THE POWER OF GOD].

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).
“[AND THE TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE] God winked at; but now [COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will judge the world in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).
“[GOD IS NOT A MAN, THAT HE SHOULD LIE; NEITHER] the Son of man, [THAT HE SHOULD REPENT]” (Numbers 23:19).
“If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON OF GOD HATH THE WITNESS IN HIMSELF]: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
[AND THIS IS THE RECORD, THAT GOD HATH GIVEN TO US ETERNAL LIFE, AND THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON]” (1 John 5:9-11).
Now then, as THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE THINGS THAT ARE ETERNAL IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST who died for us; for this purpose then WE SHOULD LIVE UNTO HIM AND NOT UNTO OURSELVES (2 Corinthians 5:15).
“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For [WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and [WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).
