But the truth is this, we are all "gravely ill" (we are all dying) and cannot save ourselves. But by God's grace, and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ at Calvary, we have been freed from these bonds of death.
Jeremiah 30:12-13 & 17
"For thus said the LORD, Your bruise is incurable, and your wound is grievous. There is none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up: you have no healing medicines. For I will restore health to you, and I will heal you of your wounds, said the LORD."
