and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
