Colossians 1:21–23; Ephesians 2:13

21 zAnd you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, adoing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled bin his body of flesh by his death, cin order to present you holy and blameless and dabove reproach before him, 23 eif indeed you continue in the faith, fstable and steadfast, not shifting from gthe hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed hin all creation1 under heaven, iand of which I, Paul, became a minister.


13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were pfar off have been brought near qby the blood of Christ.
