God is rich in mercy, and he loved me so very much, that even while I was dead
with sins he gave me life when he raised Jesus Christ from the dead all due to my sins.
It is only by God’s special favor that I have been saved!!!
For he raised me from the dead along with Jesus Christ as I am seated with him in the heavenly realms
all because I am one with Jesus Christ.
And so God can always point to me as an example of the incredible
wealth of his favor and kindness towards me, as shown in all he has done through me
through Jesus Christ. EPHESIANS 2:4-7 (NLT)
