You are not a sinner.

You know what, you’re not a sinner.

That’s not how God sees you. He sees you as righteous and holy.

He sees you as perfect.

By one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who have been made holy.

(Hebrews 10:14)

He sees you as His glorious, beautiful child, they way He intended you, because Jesus cleansed you of all of your sin on the cross.

Sins, yesterday, today and forever.

His sacrifice was once for all. 

For we have been made holy by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ once for all.

(Hebrews 10:10)

Our righteousness is a free gift, by grace.

Even if we sin, grace keeps on flooding out. That’s what’s so amazing about grace. That’s the gospel. 

We are free forever.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free!

(Galatians 5:1)

I know how terrible sin can make you feel.

If we could only grasp the wonder of seeing ourselves how God sees us – as beautiful as Jesus – then we could truly start to walk in freedom.

If we could really grasp how much He loves us, how the sacrifice of Jesus cleansed us once for all.

If we could really believe and accept that !

Lord, help us to see ourselves as you see us, adorned with your beauty and majesty, dressed in garments of salvation, as Isaiah says, and draped in a robe of your righteousness!
