God did not withhold His own Son [from dying], but offered Him up for all of us. [Since He did that], will He not, along with Jesus, freely give us everything [else] also?
For God loved the world [of sinners] so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that every person who believes in Him would not [have to] be destroyed, but have never ending life.
Then a voice came out of heaven, saying, "This is my dearly loved Son. I am very pleased with Him."
For while we were still helpless, at [just] the proper time, Christ died for ungodly people.
For the wages for sinning is [spiritual] death, but God's free gift is never ending life in [fellowship with] Christ Jesus our Lord.
And we know that God works out everything for the good of those who love Him and are called [to serve Him] in harmony with His purpose [for them].
For if God did not spare the natural branches [i.e., the Jews], He will not spare you [Gentiles] either.
But we [apostles] did not receive the spirit of the world [i.e., human wisdom. See verse 6], but the Holy Spirit from God, so that we could understand what was freely given to us from God [i.e., the gift of inspiration. See verses 9-10].
So, no one should boast about [the knowledge or position of] people. For all things belong to you,
For everything [i.e., that we have experienced. See verses 8-12] is for your sakes so that [God's] unearned favor, being extended to so many, [in bringing them salvation through Paul's ministry] may result in much thanksgiving in praise to God.
God considered Christ to be sinful on our behalf, even though He never sinned, so that we could be considered right with God through Him.
For if God did not spare sinning angels, but cast them in chains, into deep, dark dungeons to await judgment;
Here is [the essence of] love: [It is] not that we loved God [first], but that He loved us [See Rom. 5:6-8] and sent His Son to be a "covering over" [i.e., atonement, 2:2] for our sins.
The person who has victory [in the Christian life] will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be my child.
