11 You were also circumcised in Him with a circumcision not done with hands, by putting off the body of flesh, in the circumcision of the Messiah.
12 Having been buried with Him in baptism, you were also raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
13 And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive with Him and forgave us all our trespasses.
14 He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross.
Not a trace of judgment remains to be held against the forgiven. Your forgiveness is eternally complete. We who were once dead and guilty are now alive and free in Christ. Therefore, live a life in the power of the Spirit, completely abandoned to one who saved your life, not out of duty, but driven by His amazing love!
