just a UGLY, HORRIBLE SINNER, yep, that's me. :)

We are all horrible horrible horrible sinners. We all desperately need Jesus to SAVE us. That is why He died on the cross to cover ALL OUR SINS. We can't do anything to make Him love us more or less. I truly think the Christian journey shouldn't be about trying to improve or sin less and less, but I think instead God wants it to be about realizing how much we NEED His saving grace more and more each day. Realizing we are UGLY, HORRIBLE, SINNERS but that He STILL loves, forgives, and SAVES us. It's about Him. Jesus. A Savior. Our weakness, our sin only makes us see our great need for Him, see HOW DEEP HIS LOVE IS that He forgives EVERY SIN as far as the East is from the West when we ask, and seeing this makes us want to reach out with Jesus' love and grace to everyone else. We should be humbled every day, realizing more and more how weak we are and how GREAT He is, how perfectly filled with grace and love Italic
He is. He is God, I am not. I DON'T DESERVE ANY OF HIS GRACE AND LOVE AT ALL. Jesus saves!

"Righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of His blood—to be received by faith." -Romans 3:2-25

. . . Hallelujah for the blood of the Lamb that was slain!!

"You see the depth of my heart, and You love me the same. You are amazing God."

He sees us as white as snow when we ask for forgiveness!! And no matter where we are, no matter how sin-filled, how far away from Him we feel, how lost we are, He still looks down at EVERY ONE OF US ON THIS EARTH us with love.

When we give our life to Him, making Him our Savior, He becomes our Father. Even though we are still purely human, sinful ugly, UNDESERVING, our identity is now found in Christ, the cross. All of our sins have been paid for RIGHT THERE. And no matter how much we slip and fall every day, our Father delights in us, sees us as entirely beautiful. His beloved, beloved children.
