God “…desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim 2:4 & John 14:6, NKJV). Who then will be saved? “…[Whoever] believes [in Jesus Christ] and is baptized will be saved…” (Mark 16:16; John 3:16, NKJV) “…through the grace of… Christ…” (Acts 15:11; Eph 2:5 & 8, NKJV). But it is not enough to believe, for “…devils also believe…” (Jam 2:19). The “…saved… [are] called… with a holy calling… [Tit 3:5, NKJV)], according to… [God’s] own purpose and grace…” (2 Tim 1:9, NKJV). And after reconciliation to God (Rom 5:10, NKJV), “…practice righteousness…” (1 John 3:10, NKJV); “…hold fast [the] word…” (1 Cor 15:2, NKJV), “…[choose] the way of truth…” (Pss 119:30), “…receive the love of the truth” (2 Thes 2:10, NKJV), and “…walk blamelessly…” (Prov 28:18 & Php 2:15, NKJV).
