So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
KJV Romans 10:17

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Titus 2:11-14 KJV
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
2 Timothy 4:6-8 KJV
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:14-18
And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
1 Peter 5:4 KJV

To every soul thirsting after holiness there is repose, there is rest, there is the quickening influence of the Holy Spirit, and then the holy, happy, peaceful walk and precious communion with Christ. Then, oh, then, can we intelligently say with John,
“Behold the Lamb of God,
Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom:
but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.
Without counsel purposes are disappointed:
but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.
The LORD will destroy the house of the proud:
but he will establish the border of the widow.
The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD:
but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house;
but he that hateth gifts shall live.
The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:
but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
The LORD is far from the wicked:
but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.
The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul:
but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth:
but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
Do they not err that devise evil?
but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.
In all labour there is profit:
but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
The crown of the wise is their riches:
but the foolishness of fools is folly.
A true witness delivereth souls:
but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.
The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way:
but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.
There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing:
there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
The ransom of a man's life are his riches:
but the poor heareth not rebuke.
The light of the righteous rejoiceth:
but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.
Only by pride cometh contention:
but with the well advised is wisdom.
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished:
but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick:
but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed:
but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
