;
1 Cor. 6:11• 11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor. 6:11)

(Eph. 2:2‑3)
;
Col. 3:5‑7• 5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

 Practical righteousness developed itself by the setting apart of the whole being for God with ever-growing intelligence.
