Psalm 119: 1-3, 5-6, 9-18

He / she whom The Lord has chosen, and ordained, to go and bring forth fruit (letting Him win souls through us) for His Kingdom, is His Friend, and is abiding in Him! (that's a paraphrase of what His Word says)
He / she who calls upon The Name of The Lord shall be saved (delivered from the punishment and the power of sin, and from the wrath to come)!
