Only God can forgive us our sins


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times It has been said that Christians are not perfect, just forgiven. This is not only true,but it also expresses the essence of one of great truths of Christianity, the truth that all are sinners who need forgiveness. This in turn leads to the greatest of all Christian truths: God is the only one who can forgive our sins and the only way we receive His forgiveness is when we accept His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior. Salvation is a gift from God that only He can give and He only gives it through Jesus Christ, through Christianity, the faith named for and established through the earthly life, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ. God has given us all, both saved and unsaved, everything we have beginning with creation itself, but His greatest gift of all was Jesus. So if you are saved, give thanks to God for your salvation, for being forgiven and ask that He always dwell within you and lead and guide and direct you through His Holy Spirit. If you are not saved, then ask God for forgiveness through His Son and gain that salvation by letting Jesus be your Lord and Savior and having the Holy Spirit be with you each and every day of your life.
