Romans 10:8 (Amplified Bible)

But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart; that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach,

Romans 10:8 (New King James Version)

But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach):

A. The LORD JESUS CHRIST - the Living WORD is near me, in my lips and in my heart.

"But what does it say? The Word (God’s message in Christ) is near you, on your lips and in your heart;"

"that is, the Word (the message, the basis and object) of faith which we preach,"

1 Peter 1:23-25 (Amplified Bible)

You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God.

For all flesh (mankind) is like grass, and all its glory (honor) like [the] flower of grass. The grass withers and the flower drops off,

But the Word of the Lord (divine instruction, the Gospel) endures forever. And this Word is the good news which was preached to you.

Galatians 3:2 (Amplified Bible)

Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?]

Galatians 3:5 (Amplified Bible)

Then does He Who supplies you with His marvelous [Holy] Spirit and works powerfully and miraculously among you do so on [the grounds of your doing] what the Law demands, or because of your believing in and adhering to and trusting in and relying on the message that you heard?
