Jesus in my place

Sometimes, the best thing to do on a day when you are feeling the weight of guilt and shame is to remind yourself that Jesus lived a life that earns our righteousness, died a death that killed the power of sin in our lives, and rose again in victory securing our restoration.

When there are days that you feel proud and arrogant about success, accomplishments, and fruitfulness it is good to remind ourselves that there is nothing we have done that could gain God’s approval.

In Jesus, there is nothing we can do that would disqualify us from His love and there is nothing that we can do that would qualify us to receive more of God’s love. His love is unchanging and solidified in the person and work of Jesus.
