Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ —Romans 5:1).
We've all thought it. Maybe you've even said it. "I'm not good enough...." We say that because we look at life as a competition, as a performance track. Many of us place the same parameters on our relationship with God. But the reality is that there is nothing we can do that will cause God to love us any more or any less than He already does.
Are you trying to earn God's love? Stop. Because it isn't about what you do or don't do. It all comes down to the question of your relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. If you have welcomed Christ into your life, you can stop trying to earn your way to earning God's love and acceptance of you; you already have it!
Thank God for the amazing gift of grace that He has given to you through Christ. Ask Him to give you the perspective He has of you and to help you stop trying to earn His love.
