For by grace you have been saved
through faith; and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God; not as a result
of works, that no one may boast.
I have been crucified with Christ;
and it is no longer I who live,
but Christ lives in me; and the
live which I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself
up for me.
We relate to God on the basis of faith, not on the basis of works--
not only in our salvation, but also in our sanctification.
