Sin - Forgiveness

“Who can be afraid of one who is written in the same list with us? Surely we may come boldly to Him, and confess our guilt. He who is numbered with us cannot condemn us. Was He not put down in the transgressor’s list that we might be written in the red roll of the saints? He was holy, and written among the holy; we were guilty, and numbered among the guilty; He transfers His name from yonder list to this black indictment, and our names are taken from the indictment and written in the roll of acceptance, for there is a complete transfer made between Jesus and His people. All our estate of misery and sin Jesus has taken; and all that Jesus has comes to us.”
- C.H. Spurgeon

We all sin.  We all can be forgiven.  He took everything upon himself, so that we could have everything He has for us.  His grace, His mercy, His love, His acceptance, His forgiveness.... everything He has is available for us.
