The Bible says in
1 Timothy 2:5 that there is only one Mediator between God and man, the man

mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

entered in once into
the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
1 John 1:9 If we
confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to
cleanse us from all
* Admitting to God
that you have sinned, and asking for forgiveness keeps us in right
standing with him.
