Every person has sinned, and that sin has separated them from God, permeated their heart, enslaved them to their sinful passions, and set them on the course for eternal damnation. In unfathomable kindness, the Savior, Jesus Christ, God’s Son, came to earth, took on flesh, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, and rose again to reconcile man to God. He mercifully opens eyes to understand and turns hearts to believe these truths. As men turn from their sin and idolatry in faith to Christ as Lord, He grants them His righteousness and graciously gifts to them glorious eternal life.
