Only those who have ________________ Jesus Christ as Savior can rightly call God, “Father”.

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.

The clear teaching is that those have “___________” the faith; never _____________ the faith.
