1In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God...
14The Word became flesh
and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His glory,
the glory of the Only-Begotten,
Who came from the Father,
full of grace and truth."
"I tell you the truth,
no one can enter the kingdom of God
unless he is born of water and the Spirit.
6Flesh gives birth to flesh,
but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
16For God so loved the world
that He gave His One and Only Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish
but have eternal life.
16I am not ashamed of the Gospel,
because it is the power of God
for the salvation of everyone who believes:
first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
9That if you confess with your mouth,
"Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart
that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved.
10For it is with your heart
that you believe and are justified,
and it is with your mouth
that you confess and are saved.
5Your attitude should be the same
as that of Christ Jesus:
6Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped,
7but made Himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and became obedient to death--
even death on a cross!
