The Giver of life and the Creator of all things is gracious to His creation. God wants to give each of us perfect and complete forgiveness of our sins through Jesus Christ. To receive this gift, we must understand our need for forgiveness and personally trust in Jesus. We don’t need to clean ourselves up first. We don’t have to try to pay back all the wrong we have done first. We must simply open our hands to receive Christ’s gift, and hold onto it firmly, trusting in everything Christ has promised.
