Look to Jesus

Dear Saints, God has made it easy for us to rest in His assurance. We just need to be clear. We are not sure of our standing with Him because of our goodness or how well we walked in faithfulness yesterday or the fact that our parents raised us up in Christ.
Likewise, we are not cast down because we have sinned again in that old grievous way, or had that same struggling thought or have come from rough roots. Our victories do not save us and our sins and past do not damn us.
Why? Because we look to Jesus in faith. His work on the cross. His faithfulness to His Father. His victory over sin. Him, as sin, in our behalf. And our looking to Him in faith compels us both to repentance of sins and to act according to the love of God.

Jesus is God’s promise to you. If you look to Jesus, in faith, then rest assured, God’s love is towards you and nothing can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
