Incredibly, many believe in the possibility of self effort or –”DIY” – to dig out of their pit of guilt and sin.
Self effort is ultimately futile however, and in fact in doing this, the individual digs even deeper their pit!
We need, and GOD has provided a Saviour Who can reach down to lift and save us entirely. What a wonderful Saviour GOD we have! What love! What grace!
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. The gift of GOD is forgiveness of sins and eternal life to all who will believe.
