A Lasting Impression
For I delivered to you as of first importance
that which I also believed,
The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ,
that which also you received:
In the truths of the Scriptures
you took your stand –
Holding fast to the salvation
which our God has planned;
Christ died for our sins, was buried,
and was raised on the third day,
According the Scriptures;
testifying that this is the way.
My beloved brethren, be unmoveable,
diligent and always steadfast;
Knowing that if you persevere in the Lord,
your labour will surely last.

1 Corinthians 15:1-3 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
