Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
"Truly, truly, I tell you, the person who listens to my message and believes [in] the One who sent me [i.e., God] has never ending life [i.e., as a hope. See Titus 1:2; 3:7]. He will not be judged [and condemned], but has [already] passed from being [spiritually] dead to being [spiritually] alive.
I give them never ending life and they will never be destroyed, and no one will [be able to] steal them out of my hand.
For the Son of man came to save those who were lost.]}]}
For the Son of man came to search for and save those who were lost."
[Hab. 1:5 says], "Look, you people who despise [God], and be amazed [at what He can do] and be destroyed [for rejecting Him]; for I [i.e., God] will accomplish such a work during your days that you will not believe [it could happen, even] if someone told you about it."
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of [Christ dying on] the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing [i.e., in a lost state], but it is God's power to us who are being saved.
2 Corinthians 4:3
For even if our Gospel message is veiled, it is veiled [only] from those who are lost.
For we conclude that a person is made right with God by faith [in Christ], apart from [obedience to] the requirements of a law [or, the law of Moses, See verse 20].
