Find the Theme!

Can you find the theme in the following collection of Bible verses?

“…Jesus of Nazareth… went about doing good and healing all who were under the tyranny of the devil…” (Acts 10:38).

“And you were dead in your trespasses and sins in which you previously lived… according to the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit now working in the disobedient” (Eph 2:1-2).

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love that he had for us, made us alive with Christ…” (Eph 2:4-5a).

“Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children, and walk in love, as Christ also loves us and gave himself for us…” (Eph. 5:1a).

“The one who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose: to destroy the devil’s works… This is how God’s children and the devil’s children become obvious. Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother” (1 John 3:8-10).

Here’s what I see:

God, because of Jesus’ work, releases people from Satan’s control. He then brings us into his family and enables us to love one another- which is what we were originally created to do.
