Studying by way of the next Scriptures highlights God’s treatment for sin and reveals His willingness to forgive and cleanse us of “all” sin. In God’s thoughts, there is no such thing as a motive for anybody that involves Him to be sure any longer by sin or demise as a result of Jesus is God’s unfailing and everlasting treatment for sin.
