I have experienced all the above. Haven’t you?
Easter is approaching and I can’t help but think about Jesus. How can anyone go through the Easter season and not think about Jesus? He suffered. I’m not suffering.
There was a time I would have felt guilty about not suffering. Not only am I not suffering, I am feeling extremely blessed. My entire family will be celebrating together this Easter and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Jesus carried our guilt, shame, and condemnation so we could live in freedom. We can be blessed because He put an end to condemnation and striving to be “good” as means of acceptance. If Jesus Christ is your Lord and Master, you are good. You are good enough. In fact, you can’t get any better.
Enjoy His complete gift. Enjoy blessings. No condemnation.
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
–Romans 8: 1
God does not condemn you. Don’t condemn yourself.
