1 Corinthians 1:30
God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.
