Are you accepted on your own worth?
Have you done all you needed to make yourself acceptable to God?
Hate to break the news but that is impossible.
We can never do enough, clean up enough or be holy enough for an infinitely Holy God.
Thank goodness we don’t have to.
We can begin each day with the deeply encouraging realization,
I’m accepted by God,
not on the basis of my personal performance,
but on the basis of the infinitely perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ.
