The demands that God now makes on man are the same today as they were at the time of Jesus' walk on earth. The Lord gave His blood for all sinners, and He therefore also took upon Himself the guilt everybody's sin. Everyone was entitled to the graces of the work of redemption, if he acknowledged it as that. And the Lord still demands the same today. The Divinity of Jesus and the infinite love of God for mankind must be acknowledged, that He has redeemed all sins with His blood.
The gift of God, the redemption of the guilt of sin, was an undeserved gift, which only the exceeding love of God offered to man. But this gift can never be given to those people who consciously rejects it. Man must recognize his unworthiness, he must be aware of how low he has sunk through his sin and how far he has distanced himself from the eternal Godhead ..... In the realization of his unworthiness, he must beg the heavenly Father for mercy, confess his unworthiness to Him and for the sake of the work of redemption, for the sake of Jesus' great love, ask for deliverance from his guilt of sin in the deepest faith in Jesus Christ, the Divine Redeemer.
If man now presents all his sins to Him, if he becomes small and lowly before the merciful love of God, if he now pleads for mercy in deepest humility and entrusts himself and his guilt of sin to the eternal Judge for judgment, the Lord will grant mercy for justice .... For the sake of His Son, He will wipe out all guilt and, full of mercy bow down to this child who has consciously asked for the grace of the work of redemption and has decided to follow Jesus. ....
For whoever desires to be redeemed for the sake of Jesus, will also strive to shape his way of life according to the will of the Lord. He will take the Divine Redeemer as his model, he will strive to follow Him, and the work of redemption will not only be an act of one-time forgiveness of sins for him, but the occasion for a completely new life ..... All guilt will be taken away from him and with it will also the power of the adversary be broken to ever exert great influence on such a person who consciously gave himself to the Lord and Savior as his own by entering the circle of those for whom the Lord laid down His life ....
