THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed
from faith to faith:
as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.
Now we know that what things soever the law saith,
it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped,
and all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore by the deeds of the law
there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:
for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
But now the righteousness of God
without the law is manifested,
being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them that believe:
for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation
through faith in his blood,
to declare his righteousness
for the remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness:
that he might be just,
and the justifier of him
which believeth in Jesus.
Where is boasting then? It is excluded.
By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Therefore we conclude that a man
is justified by faith
without the deeds of the law.
He staggered not at the promise of God
but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised,
he was able also to perform.
And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
Now it was not written for his sake alone,
that it was imputed to him;
But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed,
if we believe on him that raised up
Jesus our Lord from the dead;
Who was delivered for our offences,
and was raised again for our justification.
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace
wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also:
knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
For when we were yet without strength,
in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:
yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through him.
For if, when we were enemies,
we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
And not only so, but we also joy in God
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom we have now received the atonement.
For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Now to him that is of power
to stablish you according to my gospel,
and the preaching of Jesus Christ,
according to the revelation of the mystery,
which was kept secret since the world began,
But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets,
according to the commandment of the everlasting God,
made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
To God only wise, be glory through
Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
1 Corinthians 1:17
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:
not with wisdom of words,
lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:19
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and will bring to nothing
the understanding of the prudent.
1 Corinthians 1:20
Where is the wise? where is the scribe?
where is the disputer of this world?
hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Corinthians 1:21
For after that in the wisdom of God the world
by wisdom knew not God,
it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching
to save them that believe.
1 Corinthians 1:22
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1 Corinthians 1:23
But we preach Christ crucified,
unto the Jews a stumblingblock,
and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1 Corinthians 1:24
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 15:1
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you
which I preached unto you,
which also ye have received,
and wherein ye stand;
1 Corinthians 15:2
By which also ye are saved,
if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you,
unless ye have believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:3
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins
according to the scriptures;
1 Corinthians 15:4
And that he was buried,
and that he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:
2 Corinthians 5:16
Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh:
yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh,
yet now henceforth know we him no more.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:18
And all things are of God,
who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ,
and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ,
reconciling the world unto himself,
not imputing their trespasses unto them;
and hath committed unto us
the word of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:20
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God did beseech you by us:
we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made
the righteousness of God in him.
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying,
and worthy of all acceptation,
that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am chief.
1 Timothy 1:16
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy,
that in me first Jesus Christ might
shew forth all longsuffering,
for a pattern to them which should hereafter
believe on him to life everlasting.
1 Timothy 1:17
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible,
the only wise God,
be honour and glory for ever and ever.
