For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith.
(Romans 3:23-25 ESV)
“I thought that because I grew up in church, deeply involved in church life, I would automatically go to heaven.”
“God showed me through the scripture that my own personal sin against him was mine. I felt the weight of that conviction and freedom that he provided through his death on the cross.”
