 “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” James 4:17

 “Only the death of Christ could take away sins.” (Hebrews 9:15)

 

#4 – Jesus died as a sinless human being and rose again to pay the full price for all those sins.

 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

 “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” (Matthew 6:14, NASB)

 “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” (Matthew 6:15, NASB)

#5 – Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life.

“…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

 “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
