“Jesus died for our sins, but his death doesn’t guarantee forgiveness for everyone. What it guarantees is the availability of forgiveness to everyone. If you want it, it’s yours:
‘Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life‘ (Revelation 22:17).
Christ offers the gift of forgiveness and eternal life, but we must choose to accept it or it isn’t ours.”
