22 God puts people right through their faith in Jesus Christ. God does this to all who believe in Christ, because there is no difference at all: 23 everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence.24 But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free.
God gives us faith in Christ and through him, makes things right. It makes no difference who we are or what any of us has done; we all need his grace, we need to be forgiven and freed to follow him. Through Jesus, we are brought near to God, our sins are forgiven and we are made free.
