I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. I am a sinner saved by God’s grace. No matter what part of my life you look at, that statement will always remain true. Before I accepted Christ into my life, I was never able to live with myself because of all the things I have done. Even when church became a regular thing again in my life, I was not able to live with myself because I was saying things like, “I am not good enough for His Love” or “I am not a good enough person to be a Christian” or even, “I don’t want to be a hypocrite, and act like I am some good guy.”
See in the world’s eyes, all of those statements are true, but in God’s eyes if we truly ask Him for forgiveness then we are forgiven. Simple as that. To quote Commissioner Francis, “God doesn’t remind us of our past, Satan does.” This tells us not to dwell on the past, or worry about who we used to be, but rather to focus on how best to show God through you because God has already moved on from that.
Life with Christ is not easy. I wish I could say that after all of this has happened, everything became easy. It is more of the opposite; everything became harder. But with Christ in my heart I am able to live with who I am. The difference is that I am forgiven in His eyes and in mine, and with that my attitude on life has completely changed.
