Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are a God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You. (Psalm 25: 4-5)
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
