How can we get rid of sin?

Although the Bible makes it clear that we are all sinners, it also teaches that Jesus got rid of all the sin of those who trust him when he died on the cross.

Christ suffered and died once. It was for all time. He was not guilty of sins. However, he died for everyone who is guilty of sin. Christ did this to bring you back to God. People killed his body, but the Holy Spirit made him alive again. (1 Peter 3:18)

God has done all this. By Christ, he has changed us from his enemies into his friends. Our task is to make people into his friends. God was bringing people back to friendship with himself by Christ. He did not keep a list of their sins so that he could punish them. He has given us a message. The message tells them how he makes them his friends. (2 Corinthians 5:18-19)

But this is how God has shown his love for us. Christ died for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
