Set Your Mind on Things Above | God Loves Me Unconditionally
You and I have to get comfortable with the thought that we are loved unconditionally and in right standing with God not because of what we have or haven’t done, but because of what Jesus did for us. Our experiences in the world and with people have told us we cannot be accepted apart from “performing” well in life and that our performances determine how much acceptance we receive. We have been deceived into believe that what we do is more important than who we are. This leaves us constantly working to prove to ourselves and others that we have value by what we do.
No matter what other people may have told you that you are not, God delights in telling you in His Word who you are in Him. Loved, valuable, precious, talented, gifted, capable, powerful, wise, and redeemed. He has a good plan for you! Get excited about your life. You are created in God’s image and you are amazing! You may still be working on your “do” which is what it means to be human but your “who is awesome”.
