By Grace Through Faith
And you hath he quickened who were dead in trespasses and sins Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world according to the prince of the power of the air the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature the children of wrath even as others. But God who is rich in mercy for his great love wherewith he loved us Even when we were dead in sins hath quickened us together with Christ by grace ye are saved.
It is by grace we have been saved through God's gift of faith.
For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God.
Redeemed sinners not only become heavenly citizens but also members of God’s own family.

He is able to do more than we could ever ask or think.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages world without end. Amen.
The New Man. Our new identity in Christ was created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness .
But ye have not so learned Christ If so be that ye have heard him and have been taught by him as the truth is in Jesus That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts And be renewed in the spirit of your mind And that ye put on the new man which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
The Holy Spirit has SEALED you.
And grieve not the holy Spirit of God whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
We were once darkness, but now we are light in the Lord.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Quench the fiery darts of the enemy to guard against temptation.
Above all taking the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
