Zech. 12:10 “And I pledge that I will pour out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy on the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem…” (Voice)

Heb.6:10 “For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.”

Heb.11:6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” [with emphasis]

Matt.16:25 “If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.”
