Our standing in this world is frequently based on our performance. We are judged based on our abilities and deeds. I am so thankful that God does not judge us in this way. Our relationship with God is based purely on our faith in His Son and what He did on the cross to pay for ALL our sins…past…present…and future. It is not about what we do, rather what Jesus finished on the cross on our behalf. That is beautiful to me, as I am so aware of my own failings and imperfections, which I am guessing you are of yours. I could never earn God’s favor by what I do, as I would always fall incredibly short of His perfection. Thankfully, it is not about me, or you, but Jesus. Pray you are able to live in the grace of our Father God and anticipate sharing in His glory……today and every day!
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:1-2
