both guilt and perfectionism cause a lack of confidence in our lives. so what do you do to replace condemnation with confidence?
first of all i accept GOD’s forgiveness. just accept it.
listen, you don’t need to carry a load of guilt around. romans 3.23-24 (nlt), for all have sinned; all fall short of GOD’s glorious standard. yet now GOD in HIS gracious kindness declares us not guilty. HE has done this through CHRIST JESUS, who has freed us by taking away our sins.
that’s the good news, the gospel! GOD wants to forgive you.
imagine a giant blackboard with all of your sins written across it and GOD comes along with a giant eraser and erases it all. it’s like an etch-a-sketch. you turn it upside down and shake it, turn it back up and the slate is clean. that’s good news, isn’t it?
we accept GOD's forgiveness.
just a thought from the front porch…
