Romans 8:1

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, - Romans 8:1

Dear Jesus,

How could there be sweeter words in a sinner's ear? I have self talk that often condemns and cajoles me. I think of all my failures and regrets and sometimes they overwhelm me. Only I know the load they create. But I am a yours by faith. I trust your work on the cross to wash away my guilt. I don't have to keep trying to defend myself to myself. I can let go and let grace cleanse my conscience. I live my life under your grace. No condemnation. Let me live out that fact all day today. And when I lay my head on my pillow tonight, help me to remember these words so when I start recounting my sins, they will be flushed down a spiritual toilet. Then send me off to peaceful dreams about the wonders of a grace filled heaven.

Amen

Pastor Don Patterson

Grace is the one spiritual gift that perfectly restores the worst and best sinner alike.
