16...For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2: 4-9
4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
2 Corinthians 5:21
21 God made him who had not sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
