1 John 2: 12…………Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
Who could do something wonderful enough to earn God’s forgiveness?
No human work can buy it. God forgives because of who He is, not because of who we are or what we do.
That’s encouraging, because we can’t earn forgiveness by our own perfection. Instead, forgiveness becomes the great blessing of our Christian life that makes living for Jesus possible.
We obey God to show our appreciation, not to gain entry into His kingdom.
