21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies
in your minds because of your evil behavior.
22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical
y through death to present you holy in his sight,
without blemish and free from accusation—
23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm,
not moved from the hope held out in the gospel.
This is the gospel that you heard a
nd that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven,
and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
