Christ suffered and died..for the forgiveness of our sins.
In Him we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of our trespasses.
"Forgiveness is giving away the right to get even. That is what God does to us when we trust Christ. If we believe in Christ, God no longer holds our sins against us. That is why Christ suffered and died. Forgiveness costs us nothing. But it cost Jesus His life." (Piper)
