Psalms 25:11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast CREATED all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were CREATED
SALVATION GLORIFIES GOD
When we are saved it is not just so that we don't have to go to hell. God is glorified in the salvation of souls and in the pardoning of sin.
Only God can pardon our sins. We can not receive pardon from a human priest, from an organization, a church, or a religious sect. Pardon can only come from God through the blood of Jesus Christ.
No one else has the power or the authority to forgive our sins. When Jesus died for our sins the veil that separated the holiest place in the temple from the common man was torn in half. We are now able to "go boldly before the throne of grace." He is glorified in forgiving our sins and in that I am sure He takes pleasure in that forgiveness.
There is no other plan for our salvation that is viable except the one that God has shown us in His Word. You are saved for His sake.
