Through the Gospel God counts your sins against Christ, not against you. He offers us acceptance based not on what we do or don’t do, but on what Christ has already done. It’s an acceptance that can neither be gained by our achievements nor forfeited by our failures. Nothing in this world can promise you such total acceptance and favor—nothing. And that’s what makes His grace so amazing.
