THE TRUTH ABOUT OURSELVES


We have a tendency to judge ourselves through our own eyes and in
comparing ourselves to others. This works for us because we don't
seem like such "bad" people. God sees us through His eyes, in total
truth and reality. Quite a different view. If He dealt out to us what we
deserve, we would be condemned and hopeless. However, He made a
way for us to be forgiven, through Jesus Christ, who paid the penalty
for us. When we grasp this wonderful news, we can never stop honoring
and thanking God for His grace and mercy.

Read Psalm 130:3,4

"If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with
you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared."(NIV)

"If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But
there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared." (KJV)

Thank you Lord Jesus for your undeserved forgiveness, without you I don't know what I would do.
Thank you for this very comforting post. God bless you.
