ROM 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

2TI 2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.

HEB 11:11 By faith even Sarah herself received ability to conceive, even beyond the proper time of life, since she considered Him faithful who had promised;

COL 1:16-17 – God the Son is the One who created and holds the universe together.
