Only Through Jesus

Law couldn't do it. Animal sacrifices couldn't do it. Piety couldn't do it. Religious practices couldn't do it. Only Jesus can bring full forgiveness of sins. Only Jesus can make us fully righteous and holy. Forgiveness and righteousness come through him.

[Phil Ware]

Acts 13:38-39 … Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Ephesians 1:7 … In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Colossians 1:13-14 … Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.

Matthew 26:28 … For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. ♥
