Faith leads to forgiveness 

When Jesus saw a paralyzed man’s friends do everything they could to get him to Jesus that He might heal the man, Luke says this happened, 

“When He saw their faith, He said to him, ‘Man, your sins are forgiven you’” (Luke 5:20).

The key ingredient here was faith, which moved the men to bring their paralyzed friend to Jesus. Faith was not static. Jesus saw what they did for their friend, even as all the other people present could see their faith. For that, the Lord of all creation forgave the man of his sins. 

Do you have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God? Is that faith such that it will lead you to do whatever you need to do to get to Jesus, who currently lives in heaven?
