For Kids

Forgiveness of sins is when God removes the penalty and punishment of sin and restores us into a perfect relationship of love and fellowship. There is nothing greater than being free to enjoy God's presence, and spend time with him and to love him and to have him love us. Did you know that forgiveness is the promise of Jesus? Ask God today to remove any feeling of guilt or any feeling of doubt about his great forgiveness. Jesus bore every bit of sin for us and the debt has been completely canceled and the penalty and punishment of sin has been removed completely. Enjoy knowing you are forgiven and enjoy being totally in love with Jesus.
