    We are saved by his grace. We are the children of the most high God who came in flesh. Therefore Brethren we must be Born Again in Spirit and not in the flesh. Shake off the ungodly things our disobedience to God's words are wrathful and against the Holy Spirit. GOD is good all the time. He is faithful to his words that as long as He lives you shall live also what a wonderful Savior. Amen

    Ephesians 2:1-9 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    I think that forgiveness and salvation is there for the asking, HE welcomes us with open arms, we just have to ask and accept.
