All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God’s paths to follow our own.
Yet the LORD laid on him the guilt and sins of us all. Isaiah 53:6
For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By His mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. Lamentations 3:22,23
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. I John 1:9
He is the sacrifice for our sins. He takes away not only our sins but the sins of all the world. I John 2:2
And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. So whoever has God’s Son has life; whoever does not have his Son does not have life. I write to you who believe in the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. I John 5:11-13
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children
of God. John 1:12
This is the disciple who saw these events [the events of the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ] and recorded them here. And we all know that
his account of these things is accurate. And I suppose that if all the other things
Jesus did were written down, the whole world could not contain the books.
