Ever question whether or not you are “good enough” to be a Christian or holy enough to be loved by God? Well, here are 4 things God won’t hold against you.
1. Your Past
Relax, you have already been forgiven. When it comes to a relationship with Jesus, don’t ever expect to run into resentment from Christ himself. Your past has been forgiven, and the future looks bright for all those willing to walk in the light of His presence. Jesus will forgive you of your past, even if you have yet to forgive yourself.
2. Your Mistakes
We’ve all made mistakes, but the beauty of the cross is that Jesus died for them. Your sins have been wiped clean, and your heart has been renewed by the grace of Jesus himself. Your mistakes do not define you. Your failures don’t have to haunt you. Your mishaps don’t need to be accounted for. God forgives you for your mistakes, even if you have yet to forgive yourself of them.
3. Your Confusion
It’s ok to be hurt, confused, and questioning what’s taking place. God understands everything you are going through, even if you do not. He can take the punches, if you will take the time to seek his guidance. The reality of your confusion may be due to a lock of Biblical knowledge, or spiritual guidance. Confusion comes and goes, but the love of God is for eternity.
4. Your Addictions
The reality is that everyone is addicted something. No matter if your struggle is drugs, alcohol, sex or pornography; your addictions will not keep the relentless love of Jesus from embracing you. Take a deep breath and find peace in knowing that you are not alone or ignored.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”
