Qualified. Rescued. Transferred. Forgiven.

 

the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Blessed be the God and Father… who… caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance… reserved in heaven for you in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago
to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace… with a view to… the summing up of all things in Christ
we… ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom… so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord… bearing fruit… and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power… for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  … cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressionsthose who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
