Bishop David Jenkins always used to say this: "God is; God is as he is in Jesus; therefore we have hope."

God has reconciled a people to himself through the death of Christ, and he is reconciling the world to himself through that people.

I didn't think of this, but I like:

'You are forgiven, therefore you are now free to repent.'

“Jesus Christ, the Son of God crucified, is the Wisdom of God, by which the love of God can save sinners from the wrath of God, and all the while uphold and demonstrate the righteousness of God.” John Piper

God created us for a personal relationship with him, however sin separated us from God, therefore in His love God sent Jesus to redeem the relationship for all eternity thus saving those who accept Christ from eternal separation.
