Romans 6:23 tells us “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” In other words, sin has a price and it’s death. Our sins cannot be forgiven by anyone or anything, only through Jesus. He is the only one who can offer us eternal life in exchange for our sins. We must rely on Him to be saved and have our sins forgiven. Without Jesus, dead sinners’ sins would not be forgiven as they are unable to accept Jesus’ grace. This is why it is so important to turn to Jesus while we are alive. He is the only one who can save us and provide a way for our sins to be forgiven.
