New Testament

“It is through the resurrected Son of God that we are recipients of God’s abundant grace and power” (4:12, 33).
“God has fulfilled his promise to his people by raising up Jesus and by granting through him the forgiveness of sins. “Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses”” (13:32-39; 16:30).
“God is not far from each one of us, for in him we live and move and have our being” (17:27-28).
ROMANS
“The gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ; the gift of righteousness comes through faith in him and not through human effort” (1:16-17).
“As believers in Christ, we are justified (declared righteous) by his grace through the redemption that was made possible through his blood” (3:23-25).
“Since we have been united with Christ in his death, we will also be united with him in his resurrection; thus we can count ourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (6:5-11).

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come” (5:17).
“God made Christ who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (5:21).
“Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously; we should not give under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
