Forgiveness is the heart of gospel truth; without it, a person cannot be freed from their guilt, sin, or wrongdoing. In the first words from the Cross, Jesus offers forgiveness to all who have wronged Him ... and he expects the same from us.
After accepting Christ as Savior, we are saved and born again into a new life, a new purpose, and a new family! The way we can be part of this new family is to accept what Christ says of us (we are acceptable in Him) and to live holy lives. Let's come out of the world and walk worthy of His sons and daughters!
