I THANK God that we are Forgiven!! I remember as a child I would say my prayers and ask God to forgive me a numerous amount of times DAILY! I would become so afraid that I would go to hell if something happened. I lived in a constant state of fear. I am so glad that as an adult I am learning about his Grace and that we are NOT perfect people. We are human, we make mistakes and we will continue to make them. The thing that sets us apart from others is that we believe in Jesus as being our Lord and Savior and we have that personal relationship with him.
This is not an excuse to sin, Romans 6:1 " Should we go on sinning so that Grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin. How can we live in it any longer?" I know that I am a sinner and everyday we have to strive to do our best and live a life pleasing to God. I mess up and still ask God daily to forgive me. I do not have that fear anymore though, since I understand that God is not a God that is ready to punish me at every little thing. I know he is a just God and will NOT tolerate sin and let us continue to get away with it. Its a daily walk, its a hard thing to die to the flesh that we are so comfortable in. I pray that God continue to help me be the best person I can be and be pleasing to him. When we stand before him I want him to say "Well done."


  1. Ahhhh, sweet and refreshing isn't it?? I am reading a book right now called " Grace plus Nothing" and it is soooo good! It is funny that we are a performance driven people. We strive to perform in order to fit into a category we want to be accepted into in this world. We strive to be loved and accepted and we take that to our relationship with God. But our striving is but filthy rags to him. No matter what we do we cannot fit in, or be good enough to be loved and accepted by Him....and he knows we will try and try and try. It is futility on our part and he let's us wear ourselves down until we can bare it no more. Broken we fall at his feet and say " HELP ME!!!! " And that is when we are ready for His grace,ready to trade our filthy rags of self righteousness for the perfect robe of righteousness that His beloved Son died to provide for us, for you, for me,incredible!

  2. True! I would like to read that book. Let me know when you are done :)
