Matthew 7:21-23

NASB

[21] "Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

[22] "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'

[23] "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you ; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.'

 

NRSV

[21] "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. [22] On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do deeds of power in your name?' [23] Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; go away from me, you evil-doers'."

Matthew 5:17-19

NRSV

[17] "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. [18] For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. [19] Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 10:9-13

NRSV

[9] Because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your hear that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. [10] For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. [11] The scripture says, "No one who believes in him will be put to shame." [12] For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. [13] For, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

12:5     But you shall seek the place that the LORD your God will choose out of all your tribes as his habitation to put his name there.

12:11   then you shall bring everything that I command you to the place that the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his name: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and your donations, and all your choice votive gifts that you vow to the LORD.

14:23   In the presence of the LORD your God, in the place that he will choose as a dwelling for his name, you shall eat the tithe of your grain, your wine and your oil, as well as the firstlings of your herd and your flock, so that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always.

16:2    You shall offer the passover sacrifice for the LORD your God, from the flock and the heard, at the place that the LORD will choose as a dwelling for his name. 

16:6    But at the place that the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his name, only there shall you offer the passover sacrifice, in the evening at sunset, the time of day when you departed from Egypt.

16:11  Rejoice before the LORD your God - you and your sons and your daughters, your male and female slaves, the Levites resident in your towns, as well as the strangers, the orphans, and the widows who are among you - at the place where the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his name. 

26:2   you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground,  which you harvest from the land that the LORD your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place that the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his name.
