From Condemnation to Confidence


Many of us have been condemning ourselves , maybe because of some unresolved guilt, maybe because of some unrealistic expectations, maybe both. The Bible says, "All of us have sinned and we all fall short of God's ideal; yet, now God declares us not guilty if we trust in Jesus Christ, who in his kindness, freely takes away our sins." Would you like to have that burden removed? Would you pray, "Jesus Christ, I want to ask you to forgive me for all the things I've ever done wrong." If something specific comes to mind ask forgiveness for that, and accept Gods forgiveness because of Jesus Christ.Then would you pray, "Lord, help me to relax in your grace, to realize that you don't expect perfection. There is no condemnation in Christ. You'll never love me any more and never love me any less because of what I do." "Father, I want to walk in your grace. I want to take off the yoke of guilt and put on the yoke of grace today. Lord, help me to eliminate the negative self-talk in my life. Help me to focus my mind on the positive things. Help me to read my Bible every day and memorize it and meditate on it. And as I read it, remind me again and again how much you love me."


“and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:24‬ ‭
