"We are all sinners. And our sinning doesn't stop after we become Christians. And while our sin nature doesn't give us an excuse to sin, we do have the promise of forgiveness, even as Christians.
While we should strive to draw closer to God, we also need to understand that amazing thing called grace. Because of what His Son did for us, God loves us unconditionally. We don't seek to please Him so that He will love us. We seek to please Him because we desire to respond to His grace and love."
