Romans 5:6-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Those Declared Righteous Are Reconciled

For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly. For rarely will someone die for a just person—though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die. But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!

Romans 6:5-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death, we will certainly also be[a] in the likeness of His resurrection. For we know that our old self[b] was crucified with Him in order that sin’s dominion over the body[c] may be abolished, so that we may no longer be enslaved to sin, since a person who has died is freed[d] from sin’s claims.[e] Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him,

Romans 8:34-36 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

34 Who is the one who condemns?
Christ Jesus is the One who died,
but even more, has been raised;
He also is at the right hand of God
and intercedes for us.
35 Who can separate us from the love of Christ?
Can affliction or anguish or persecution
or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
36 As it is written:
Because of You
we are being put to death all day long;
we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.[a]
