WE ARE FORGIVEN OF OUR SINS BECAUSE…
I HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST; IT IS NO LONGER I WHO LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME; AND THE LIFE WHICH I NOW LIVE IN THE FLESH I LIVE BY FAITH IN THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME.
But GOD, who is RICH in MERCY, because of HIS GREAT LOVE with which HE LOVED US, even when we were DEAD in TRESPASSES, made us ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by GRACE you have been SAVED), and RAISED us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly place IN CHRIST JESUS, that in the ages to come He might show the EXCEEDING RICHES of His GRACE in His KINDNESS toward us in CHRIST JESUS.
For by GRACE you have been SAVED through FAITH, and that NOT OF YOURSELVES, it is the GIFT OF GOD, NOT OF WORKS, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
