Micah 7:18-20 (NKJV)
18 Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity
And passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?
He does not retain His anger forever, Because He delights in mercy.
19 He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities.
You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
20 You will give truth to Jacob and mercy to Abraham,
Which You have sworn to our fathers from days of old.
He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. (Mic 7:19)
Jesus told the parable of wedding feast and the end was a startling remark, 'For many are called, but few are chosen' (Matt 22:14). The grace of God extents to all and sundry, the first respond is faith to believe that the Father has sent the Son to save us from sin. The second respond is our responsibility to deal with sin (2 Cor 7:1), as much as faith without actions is dead.
Iniquity is the depravity of human rebellion against God, rejecting His will and living for our own desire. It is only God Who can put the death blow to our personal depravity and cast it into the sea, never to surface again. Faith is not trying not to sin, but believing that we have been endowed with Christ's life that we don't have to sin. It is also to believe that sin no longer has dominion over us (Rom 6:14). He will indeed again have compassion on us; it is whether we are willing to let Him do His sovereign work. When Jesus told the woman taken in adultery to 'go, and sin no more', it is not a futile suggestion but a command. The same authoritative speaking that commanded 'Let there be light: and there was light' (Gen 1:3).
