Because of Calvary,
I Timothy 1:15 (ESV)
15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
“…Soul, if thou art willing to be saved in Christ, — if thou art willing to be saved, in this way in the second Adam as thou art assuredly lost in the first Adam, — let not the number of thy sins confound thee, so as to prevent thee from having hope of eternal salvation in Christ Jesus. Let thy sins so confound thee as to drive thee to despair if thou hast any hope in thyself or in thine own merits, in thine own feelings, or doings, or weepings, or in anything that is thine; but if salvation is to be had through the blood of Another, through the merits of Another, and thou art willing to have it so, then, though thy sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool; and though they be more in number than the hairs of thy head, they shall, in one single instant, be taken from thee never to return. Yes, in a moment shall they disappear, and shall never be mentioned against thee any more forever. Is not this good news?… One sin has slain us, but Christ’s mercy bringeth us the death of all our multitudes of sins.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 436-437]
