Yesterday I wrote that we had to focus on the truth in the Word instead of listening to the worries and fear of the world.
One of the greatest truths that I love and often write about is that we are righteous.
If you are born again you are righteous and accepted in the eyes of the Lord.
As a gift of grace through faith in Jesus you have been made righteous; God accepts you because of the work of Jesus.
Don’t worry about what people say about you, don’t worry if people reject you.
Remember that God accepts you and sees you as OK in His sight.
Would you rather have acceptance from men or from God?
The truth is that you already have acceptance from God, so what does it matter what men think?
Now I’m not telling you that you can be rude or offensive and then say, “Well it doesn’t matter what you think”.
But I’m saying that when men reject you and don’t approve of you don’t get worried and anxious, remember that your Loving Heavenly Father accepts you and approves of you.
Are you a Christian?
If you said yes, then you are righteous, you are approved and you are accepted by God.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that as a gift of grace through faith in Jesus I have been made righteous”.
2 Corinthians 5 v 21…..For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be the righteousness of God in him
