Isaiah 43:25 "I, even I, am He who blots out all your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. (Willful, repeated sin)
Sin-one single act- an offense. Transgress- Rebel against, the path of godly living. Iniquity-sin repeated after you receive the word becomes iniquty. Generational, high blood pressure, alcoholism, sexual perversions, jealousy, anger, fear, racism, etc. are passed down from generation to generation.

Matthew 18:21-28 Peter said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Jesus said to him, " seventy times seven. Just like I blotted out all your sins. And remember no more.
How sweet the sound, that saved a Wretch like me, I once was Lost, but now I’m Found, was Blind but now I See.
Amazing Grace is "the Power of God – the Anointing of God to do for us, what we cannot do for ourselves. John 15:5, we cannot do anything for ourselves. Jesus said, "...without me ye can do nothing."
Ephesians 2:1-8 For by Amazing Grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved ([a]delivered from guilt, condemnation, and judgment; we are made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through faith. And this [salvation] came not through your own ability, but it is the Gift of God.

The super-natural, Holy Ghost Power, and ability of God flowing and operating through us in order to give us the power to take authority and dominion over the Kingdom of darkness, and live a life free from sin. John 3:16-17 Amazing Grace for a lost World.

Go and Sin No More - Shall we Continue in Sin, God Forbid
Romans 6:1-2 So do you think we should continue sinning so that God will give us even more grace? 2 No! We died to our old sinful lives, so how can we continue living with sin?
John 5:2-14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: Go and Sin No More, lest a Worse Thing Come Unto You. Sin separates us from God and his Blessings, and breaks fellowship.
1. Jesus knew the secrets of his past – Go and Sin No More: his former sins were the cause of his long affliction.
2. Jesus knew his future - lest a worse thing come unto thee: if thy Iniquity be repeated, thy punishment will be increased.

John 8:3-11 Jesus said unto her, Neither do I Condemn thee: Go, and Sin No more. - Jesus extended Grace from the law, but warned her of future sins, Go and Sin no More.
I John 3:6-10 (God-Word) Those who live (abide) in Christ Don't go on Sinning. To “Abide” means to live, continue, or remain;
Abiding in Christ” means an intimate, close relationship, and not just a superficial relationship. There are proofs that one abides in Christ (proofs that one is truly saved and not just pretending). These proofs include obedience to God’s Word; following Jesus’ example; living free from habitual sin; and the awareness of God’s divine presence living in us.
Romans 8:1 There is No Condemnation to those who (abides) in Christ Jesus, who Do Not Walk according to the Flesh, but according to the Spirit. There is freedom from sin when we walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16 If you walk in the Spirit, ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Walk in the Spirit means: rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us in thoughts, words, and deeds. We can know we are walking in the Spirit if we show forth the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
