Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
Jesus said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead; you must go and spread the news of the Kingdom of God!"
for my son here was dead, and he has come to life; he was lost, and he is found!' So they began to celebrate.
and you must not offer the parts of your bodies to sin as the instruments of wrong, but offer yourselves to God as men brought back from death to life, and offer the parts of your bodies to him as instruments of uprightness.
2 Corinthians 5:14
It is Christ's love that controls me, for I have become convinced that as one has died for all, all have died,
You also were dead because of the offenses and sins
So it says, "Wake up, sleeper! Rise from the dead, And Christ will dawn upon you!"
1 Timothy 5:6
A widow who gives herself up to pleasure is dead while she is still alive.
Let us therefore leave elementary Christian teaching alone and advance toward maturity. We must not be always relaying foundations, of repentance for wrong-doing, and of faith in God,
how much more surely will the blood of the Christ, who with the eternal Spirit made himself an unblemished offering to God, purify our consciences from the old wrongdoing for the worship of the everliving God?
So faith by itself, if it has no good deeds to show, is dead.
So remember that you were once physically heathen, and called uncircumcised by those who called themselves circumcised, though only physically, by human hands.
For just as the Father awakens the dead and makes them come to life, the Son makes anyone whom he chooses come to life.
The Spirit is what gives life; flesh is of no use at all. The things that I have said to you are spirit and they are life.
as the Scripture says, "I have made you the father of many nations." The promise is guaranteed in the very sight of God in whom he had faith, who can bring the dead to life and call into being what does not exist.
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has taken possession of you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give your mortal bodies life through his Spirit that has taken possession of you.
1 Corinthians 15:36
You foolish man, the very seed you sow never comes to life without dying first;
2 Corinthians 3:6
and he has qualified me to serve him in the interests of a new agreement, not in writing but of spirit. For what is written kills, but the Spirit gives life.
You must understand therefore, my brothers, that through him the forgiveness of your sins is announced to you,
'For this is the agreement that I will make with the house of Israel, In those later days,' says the Lord; 'I will put my laws into their minds, And write them on their hearts, And they will have me for their God, And I will have them for my people.
1 John 1:7
But if we live in the light, just as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from every sin.
1 John 2:12
I am writing to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven for his sake.
And you once practiced them as others do, when you lived that old earthly life.
