And hath raised us up together and hath made us sit together in the heavenly places, through Christ Jesus.
That he might shew in the ages to come the abundant riches of his grace, in his bounty towards us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you are saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God.
Not of works, that no man may glory.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which God hath prepared that we should walk in them.
For which cause be mindful that you, being heretofore gentiles is the flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision in the flesh, made by hands:
That you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the conversation of Israel and strangers to the testament, having no hope of the promise and without God in this world.
But now in Christ Jesus, you, who some time were afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition, the enmities in his flesh:
Making void the law of commandments contained in decrees: that he might make the two in himself into one new man, making peace
And might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross, killing the enmities in himself.
