If you are a Christian - you are saved. Full stop. Your salvation doesn't rely on you being good (thank goodness, because none of us are good enough). We are saved because Jesus paid the price for our sin with his death and resurrection. When I was a young Christian, I felt like I had to earn God's love even though I knew I was saved by grace. I also felt condemned, guilty and ashamed. These are lies are from the evil one. I couldn't understand how God could love me because of my sin. I heard someone say that when God looks at me, he doesn't see my sin, just the blood of Christ. It blew me away!
Prayer: Thank you Father that Jesus died to forgive my sins and that you have forgiven and forgotten them. Help me not to listen to the enemy when he tries to make me feel guilty and ashamed. Thank you that I have been saved by grace. Transform me to be more like Christ. Amen
