Isaiah 53:3-6 NIV
He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.Surely he took up OUR pain and bore OUR suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for OUR transgressions, he was crushed for OUR iniquities; the punishment that brought US peace was on him, and by his wounds WE are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us ALL.

Colossians 2:13-15 NIV
When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins,having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
“Jesus is the ‘First Fruits’, the ‘Pioneer of Life.’ He has forced open a door that has been locked since the death of the first man. He has met, fought, and beaten the king of death. Everything is different because he has done so!” – C.S. Lewis

Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God?

And that is what some of you WERE. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
