GOD SEES US THROUGH JESUS


GOD SEES US THROUGH JESUS

Romans 5:16 (NKJV) And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification.

Romans 5:16 (NLT) And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins.

Wow, what a verse!  Even though we are guilty of many sins, we have been justified because of what God has done through Jesus Christ!  This does not happen one day when we get to heaven.  We are justified now!  We are blameless and accepted in the beloved in God’s sight.

Some people believe that when you say things like this, it makes people want to sin.  What I have found is that when you show people the freedom that God has given to us by the blood of Jesus, it empowers us not to sin.

If all I think about is my sin problem, I am going to sin more.  But when I think of Jesus, and that God is not mad at me anymore, that He loves me like a good earthly father loves their child, then I fall in love with God so much that I do not want to do anything that would cut off that great communion with Him.

So today, do not look at your shortcomings; look to Jesus!  Do not look at your failures; look to Jesus!  He is the Perfect One!  We are not perfect, so He has given us His righteousness.  He has given us His holiness, His beauty, and His love.  Look to Jesus, and your self-esteem will be lifted up.

When we can see ourselves the way God see us, and He always sees us through Jesus, then things will turn around for us.  Your life will be filled with joy unspeakable and full of glory!

Confession: Today, I make a decision to see myself the way that God sees me, and that is through the blood of His dear Son, Jesus!  I am not going to look at my shortcomings.  I am going to look at the One who conquered all for me!
