Salvation in Christ a free gift

As I Can See

And you were dead, through the crimes and the sins in which you used to live
when you were following the way of this world, obeying the ruler who governs

Philippians 1:27-30

But when Christ is revealed – and he is your life – you too will be revealed in all
your glory with him.

Colossians 3:1-4
