Confidence allows you to receive correction without self-condemnation

2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP)  17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!   

If nobody teaches you who you are in Christ, then life can be overwhelming. But if you are confident in who you are and you receive correction from God, then you receive His correction and let that correction help you grow in your relationship with Him.  Don’t focus on far you have to go but how far you have come.

Righteousness does not come through keeping the law and doing everything right, it comes through relationship with Christ.  No man can be justified by the law, but by putting faith in Jesus.

God takes our sin and bondage and gives us His righteousness.  It really is that simple.  But we have to be willing to give our sin up.  So many of us want to hold onto our sin and feel sorry for ourselves when we have been convicted to change.

We are made right with God through the blood of Christ.   That is it.

About lisajohnson401

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
