It’s time to stop hurting yourself. Jesus was hurt for all your sins. It’s time to stop beating yourself. Jesus has taken all your beatings at the cross. It’s time to stop cutting and punishing yourself because Jesus has received all the cutting and punishing on your behalf. It’s time to stop asking yourself if you have done enough to earn God’s forgiveness and acceptance. His forgiveness and grace are undeserved - they cannot be achieved; they can only be received."
Joseph Prince, “The Power of Right Believing”.
I am bad and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. I will always be me."

Take a pen. Put it in the middle of the bible and then close it. What do you see? You just see the bible. You don’t see the pen anymore. That is what your life in Christ means. In Him, you are completely covered in God’s love for you and the finished work of Christ."
