My previous post was on a lesson I heard about forgiveness, and how God wants us to also forgive ourselves. I wanted to follow that post with this video below. Often as people we mess up, and their are times when we come to this feeling that we are not “good enough” to bring our problems to Him. We begin to think, “How can I come to Him after all I’ve done?”.
The truth is, I know I have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. I have made mistakes and will make mistakes. However, as I continue to live less for self, and more for Him, my hope is to make him proud of me. Although I will always fall short, it is by Grace I am saved through faith. Our God is a merciful God full grace, who meets us exactly where we are today. I believe this song paints a good picture of the awesome love and grace He truly has for us.
For him to still love me after all the stuff I’ve done, how can it be? A love and grace like no other.
His Forgiveness & Love
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Romans 6:14 ESV
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
