Did you know that when God looks at you, He doesn't see you..he sees Jesus? Even when you sin and don't do everything right, because Jesus paid the price for your sins with His precious blood. "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us" (Heb. 9:12). For by one offering he has perfected forever (spiritually) them that are sanctified (Heb. 10:14). Also, "I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more" (Heb. 8:13). So if God doesn't remember your sins, why do you keep bringing them up? "You are holy and without blame in his sight" (Eph. 1:4). Of course, God does not want you to sin because that give the enemy place in your life, but he understand that we are still a work in progress until we recieve our new body (Cor. 15:44). " For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin. Let us therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Heb. 4:15-16).
