For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
“See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.”
Song of Solomon 2:11–12
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
