“The icing on the cake is that I am not only freed from having to prove myself to others, but I am also freed from having to prove myself to GOD. I do not enter a right relationship with GOD because I’m good enough or because I observe the law. I enter a relationship with God because I accept that Jesus loved me enough to die for me.” – an excerpt from “Enjoy, A Thirst-Quenching Look at Philippians” by Tianne Moon (with my underlining emphasis)
This is something that I truly struggle with I have to admit. Thankfully CHRIST is good at reminding me of HIS love for me on a daily basis and that HE will always remind me when I forget.
Knowing CHRIST doesn’t mean doing what I can for HIS approval. It doesn’t mean that if I’m not a good Christian that HE will walk away from me and wait for me to be “good” again. In HIS Word HE promises us that HE will never leave us or forsake us. (Deu 31:6) Knowing Christ is a daily walk with HIM and bowing at HIS feet at the same time.
