Psalms 51:5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother
Romans 3:10-12 As it is written There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away,
they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even
Isaiah 63:5 I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me.
I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.
Romans 5:7-10 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for
a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own
love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we
have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from
God's wrath through him! For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled
to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled,
shall we be saved through his life!
Galatians 3:1-5 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Have you suffered so much for nothing -- if it really was for nothing? Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Acts 2:41 Those
who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to
their number that day.
Galatians 6:14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Romans 3:27-28 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me
and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if
righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
