“My only aim is to complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24).
Have you heard the good news of God’s grace?
Contrary to what you may have heard, God is not mad at you; he’s mad about you. God does not want to bless you because you are good, but because he is good. And all that pressure to perform? None of it is from your Father who loves you just as you are.
What is grace?
Grace is favor, freedom, forgiveness and a million other blessings besides. Grace is God blessing you for no other reason than he loves you. Grace is divine power to live abundantly in union with the One who loves you and calls you by name.
If you are weary from trying to live the Christian life, maybe you haven’t heard the good news of God’s grace. You’ve been told to perform and produce, but it’s just not happening. Here’s the good news: Only One person ever lived the Christian life and it wasn’t you.
Christ is your life.
The good news of God’s amazing grace means you can stop running, stop doubting, and stop trying to earn what he has freely given.
Believe it, receive it, and be at peace.
