and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a
propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness...."
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law,
having become a curse for us (for it is written, 'Cursed is
everyone who hangs on a tree'), that the blessing of Abraham might
come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the
promise of the Spirit through faith." Galatians
“...you were not
redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold... but
with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish
and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the
foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times
for you who through Him
believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him
glory, so that your faith and hope are in God."
"...do you not know
that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you,
whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For
you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your
body and in your spirit, which are God’s." 1 Corinthians
"For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.
For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to
the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the
“There is therefore now no condemnation
to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according
to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the
Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of
sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak
through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in
the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be
fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh
[fallen human nature] but according to the Spirit.
those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the
things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit,
the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death,
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the
carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to
the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are
in the flesh cannot please God.
"But you are not in the flesh but in
the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now
if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His." Romans
"...take heed to
yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has
made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He
purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my
departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the
flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking
perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.
Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not
warn everyone night and day with tears."
"For if the blood of
bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the
unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how
much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal
Spirit offered Himself without spot to God,
cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the
living God? And for this reason He is the Mediator of the
new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption
of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who
are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance."
"For I am not ashamed of
gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to
salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also
for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is
revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, 'The just shall live
by faith.'” Romans 1:16-17
the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born
of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were
under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His
Son into your hearts, crying out, 'Abba, Father!' Therefore you
are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir
of God through Christ."
...who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from
every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special
people, zealous for good works."
then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
redeeming the time [by faith, using it for His service
and glory], because the days are evil."

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that
you may know how you ought to answer each one."
“The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you
were more in number than any other people, for you were the
least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you, and
because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers,
the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed
you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king
