made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. By grace you are saved!
He also raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavens, in Christ Jesus,
so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift--
not from works, so that no one can boast.
For we are His creation-- created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
