(Things that go together)
BELIEVE AND BE BAPTIZED
Believing in Jesus as the Son of God and being baptized into Him.
"He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned."
FAITH AND WORKS
Faith is validated by works.
But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected.
TRIALS AND GODLY LIVING
Trials are part of the life of a Christian.
Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
2 Timothy 3:12
LOVE GOD AND LOVE BROTHER
Love of God must be accompanied by love of brother.
If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.
1 John 4:20-21
HOPE AND JESUS
Hope is found only in Jesus.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
1 Peter 1:3
