The love that Jesus has for each of us is outside our understanding. We cannot comprehend anyone loving people that are so undone in their thinking, speech and conduct. Why would our Lord leave all heaven and come down to this earth and mix with such sinful people and be willing to die on the cross for us? He lived in beautiful heaven with no sin and with angels that loved Him and worshiped Him. Yet, He left all that for you and me. “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:6-8
Because of what He did, the most despicable person on the face of this earth has a chance to be with Him, forever. If the most wicked person on this earth today asked Jesus to come into his life; to forgive all his sins; and turned away from his sins; and by faith believes that Jesus died on the cross for him; and starts living his life in the way the Lord wants him to; he can be saved. We are all saved by grace. It is a free gift from our sweet Jesus.

All of us are sinners in need of a Savior. Do you recognize that? No one, not even the Pope, has the right to say that he is sinless. Our only ticket out of this sinful world, is Jesus. Because of His great love for us, He took my place and your place on the cross. We do not have to die for our sins because Jesus took our place and died in our place. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
No church can save us; Jesus is our Savior.
“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, know the lord: for they shall know me from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jeremiah 31: 34

My Lord knows how to help me to achieve the victory over my sins because He understands me so well. He lovingly works with me in helping me to become more like Him. I am so appreciative because with Him is where I want to be.
Go to Him in prayer, right this minute, friend, and ask Him to help you to achieve the victory over every sin in your life, and He will. He loves you and wants you to dwell with Him in the World Made New.
