Sin is the one thing that divides men from God. Sin is also the only plea for mercy the sinner has. It is the only reason he can give why the Son of God should have compassion on him, and by the blood of His cross bring him near to the Father. This is the foundation that can never be moved.
"By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Eph. 2:88For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (Ephesians 2:8).
This is the gospel—the good news of salvation. If you believe it you are saved.
"Happy they who trust in Jesus,
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
He will keep His own secure."
