Romans 3:23 All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Romans 3:24 But God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins. Romans 5:5 God has given us the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love. Romans 3:25 God sent Christ to be our sacrifice. Christ offered his life’s blood, so that by faith in him we could come to God. Romans 5:2 Christ has also introduced us to God’s undeserved kindness on which we take our stand. So we are happy, as we look forward to sharing in the glory of God. 2 Peter 3:18 Let the wonderful kindness and the understanding that come from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ help you to keep on growing. Praise Jesus now and for ever! Amen.
