Romans 8:1 - There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Do you ever find you berate yourself over a mistake you've made? Are you embarrassed, do you fret or become anxious about discussing this with God? Do you believe it was so bad He could not forgive you? Now is the time to remember that He is fully aware of all you think or do. And even better, He is fully merciful to forgive if you just ask. He knows all about you; knows all the hairs on your head. He loves you. His desire is for you.
What a wonderful God we serve! We all fall into sin at times but it is because we are children of the Most High God we are able to boldly enter into the Holy of Holies and ask for forgiveness. We are called to come just as we are, sins and all, that we might receive that forgiveness for all our mistakes/sins and fall under the non-condemnation clause in the Word of God! If we have received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, it is a done deal. His love for us will never fade. It remains the same today as it was the day we first received Him because He never changes.
We all have imperfections, so let's not compare ourselves with someone else. We are all at different levels in our journey with the Lord. He does not compare us, nor does He condemn us, His children. He chose us to accomplish His plans. He desires to change our negative into positive. The mistakes we make as we go along will help us to learn and grow. As children of God we are all equal in His sight. Each one has a perfect plan and it does not include being condemned.
Let's thank God that He does not condemn us. He might discipline but also is part of our learning and growing experience. Let's thank Him that despite the mistakes we made He is always willing to forgive if we acknowledge them before Him. We do not need to worry about going to Him to seek His forgiveness. He is merciful, quick to forgive and desires to renew our spirits.
John 3:18 - He that believes in Him is not condemned....
