But the commonwealth to which we belong is in heaven, and from it we are eagerly awaiting the coming of a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
But you have come up to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to countless angels,
I will make him who is victorious a pillar in the temple of my God; he shall never go out of it again. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God??he new Jerusalem, which is to come down out of heaven from my God??nd my new name.
And I saw the new Jerusalem, the holy city, come down out of heaven from God, like a bride dressed and ready to meet her husband.
For the Scripture says that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave-girl, and one by the free woman.
This is the freedom with which Christ has freed us. So stand firm in it, and do not get under a yoke of slavery again.
So if the Son sets you free you will be really free.
For sin must no longer control you, for you live not under law but under mercy.
1 Peter 2:16
Live like free men, only do not make your freedom an excuse for doing wrong, but be slaves of God.
