FREEDOM FROM INADEQUACY

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1 (NKJV)

Many people are bound by feelings of inadequacy. They struggle with low self-esteem and unworthiness. Your sense of self-worth comes from only one Source, the Lord Jesus Christ. He would never want you to view your life as being less than the very best in Him.

That is what He has in mind for you—the best. When God thinks of you, He thinks of His Son and what He did for you at Calvary. He never considers all the mistakes of the past or even those that will come in the future. Instead, God focuses on your potential.

He does this because His love and forgiveness are greater than any sin. The Lord HATES SIN, but He certainly does not look at your life and think, There’s no way for Me to bless  him or her because of what he or she has done. God does not operate that way.

Is this a license to sin? Certainly not, but it is truly an invitation to love and be loved by the One who loves you the most.

When you fall, God provides a way of forgiveness. He lifts you up and gives you a new opportunity at life. Only Jesus Christ can truly set you free.
