Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the One who died, but even more, has been raised; He also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us.
Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts.

They became callous and gave themselves over to promiscuity for the practice of every kind of impurity with a desire for more and more.
But that is not how you learned about the Messiah,
assuming you heard Him and were taught by Him, because the truth is in Jesus:
you took off your former way of life, the old man that is corrupted by deceitful desires;
Ephesians 5:1-11
Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children.
And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.
But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints.
And coarse and foolish talking or crude joking are not suitable, but rather giving thanks.
For know and recognize this: no sexually immoral or impure or greedy person, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of the Messiah and of God.
Let no one deceive you with empty arguments, for because of these things God's wrath is coming on the disobedient.
Therefore, do not become their partners.
For you were once darkness, but now [you are] light in the Lord. Walk as children of light--
for the fruit of the light [results] in all goodness, righteousness, and truth--
discerning what is pleasing to the Lord.
Don't participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead, expose them.
Colossians 3:5-8
Therefore, put to death whatever in you is worldly: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.

and you once walked in these things when you were living in them.
But now you must also put away all the following: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and filthy language from your mouth.
Titus 2:11-14
For the grace of God has appeared, with salvation for all people,
instructing us to deny godlessness and worldly lusts and to live in a sensible, righteous, and godly way in the present age,
while we wait for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a special people, eager to do good works.
1 Peter 1:13-19
Therefore, get your minds ready for action, being self-disciplined, and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance
but, as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct;
for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.
And if you address as Father the One who judges impartially based on each one's work, you are to conduct yourselves in reverence during this time of temporary residence.
For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things, like silver or gold,
but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish.
2 Peter 1:4-10
By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge,
knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with godliness,
godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being useless or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted, and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins.
Therefore, brothers, make every effort to confirm your calling and election, because if you do these things you will never stumble.
2 Peter 3:14
Therefore, dear friends, while you wait for these things, make every effort to be found in peace without spot or blemish before Him.
1 John 3:7-10
Little children, let no one deceive you! The one who does what is right is righteous, just as He is righteous.
The one who commits sin is of the Devil, for the Devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose: to destroy the Devil's works.
Everyone who has been born of God does not sin, because His seed remains in him; he is not able to sin, because he has been born of God.
This is how God's children-- and the Devil's children-- are made evident. Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother.
