VI. WHAT DOES GOD DO?
When you do your part in confessing your sin and giving Jesus control over your life, God will do His part. After accepting Jesus as your Savior and making Him your Lord, several incredible things take place:
- God completely forgives all of your sin
- God recreates you into a new person
- God brings you back into relationship and right standing with Him
- God makes you His child
What the Bible Says
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
—1 John 1:9
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
—2 Corinthians 5:17
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
—2 Corinthians 5:21
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
