Christ is faithful to forgive us
While we were yet sinners Christ did what? Romans 5:8 says: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. What amazing words these are. God sent Jesus Christ who took our sins upon Himself and paid the ultimate price for our sins with His own death that we could have eternal life. He died not because we were good enough but because He loved us so much. There is nothing we can do to earn this forgiveness. Only through Christ can it be made right. We must confess our sins to Him and He is faithful to forgive us. Sadly, many will pass up this incredible gift and continue to enjoy their sins.
