New Life

 

lifenChristWe do not need to let lies define who we are. When God looks at us, He doesn’t see our imperfections. He doesn’t even see our failures and mistakes.

He sees beyond who we are and what we’ve done. He sees beyond who we have been to who we can become. We can become His very own children when we choose to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. And when we believe Jesus is our Savior, God sees us for who we really are – who He made us to be.

He sees us for who we are in Christ. Just one glance at us and He sees His very own perfect Son, Jesus Christ, who took our place on the cross.  I deserved the death He died. I am the one who messed up. I am the one who is imperfect. I am the one who is broken. It was supposed to be my death on the cross… I fail… I make the mistakes… I deserved the punishment. Why did Jesus take my place…

God chose to look past all my iniquities because of Jesus. It is His unconditional love that saves you and me. With Christ, the devil is no longer a threat. God’s perfect love casts out all the fear and evil lies of the devil! We are released from Satan’s evil traps! The devil tries to deceive us into thinking negative thoughts about ourselves, but in our new life with Christ we are set free!
