It is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace
By grace you have been saved—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and are justified by his grace as a gift…to be received by faith.
Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?…Does He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? —follow in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised.
…much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ—Who shall also confirm you unto the end, [that ye may be] blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.
I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. —Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.
