We have forgiveness of sins because of God's rich grace.
God has rescued us from the power of darkness and has brought us into the kingdom of his Son, whom he loves. His Son paid the price to free us, which means that our sins are forgiven.
Even though humankind has been rebellious and sinful since creation, God loves us so much that he has forgiven us. It cost him dearly though—his son, Jesus, died in our place so that we could be forgiven.
It's like when your dog escapes and is caught by the ranger who takes it to the pound. You have to pay a fee to have him released. Spiritually we were stuck in the pound, but God came and paid the fee so that we could be released.
