sin when we commit acts which are contrary to
God's holy standard of righteousness. We sin when
we fail to do what we know is the right thing
to do. We sin when we have unrighteous attitudes.
We have ALL sinned and must look to Jesus Christ

and fall short of the glory of God.

not want robots that were forced to respond to
His every direction. He took a risk in order to
have a relationship with His created beings.

is not based on the magnitude of the sin, but
the magnitude of the forgiver's love. No sin is
too great for God's complete and unconditional
love. Forgiveness means that God looks at us as
though we never sinned.

argue this out, says the Lord. No matter how
deep the stain of your sins, I can remove it.

if you are stained as red as crimson, I can
make you as white as wool.
the bible says we are saved by grace, it means
that God has freely chosen to pardon our sin through
Jesus Christ. We do not have to earn God's love
or work our way to heaven. By grace we are forgiven
for our sin and restored to full fellowship with

is death but the free gift of God is eternal
life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
does faith in God's grace bring salvation?
belief that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for
our sin is all that is required on mans part for
salvation. Belief or faith that Jesus Christ is

We do not have salvation without it. We do not
receive God's free gift of grace without it.
16:31 Believe in the Lord
Jesus, and you will be saved.
