Jesus Guarantees Your Salvation, Not Your Works!

Hello my wonderful sisters and brothers in Christ. God has finally delivered me from Legalism and trying to ensure my salvation by the works that I do (being good enough).  I realize now how deep and profound God's love is.  I realize that He is NEVER going to abandon me, and that NOTHING can separate me from the love of Christ, as St. Paul said.  I have tried for 11 years to be good enough- then I would run away from God when I thought I had failed him  Now I see that He paid for ALL of it at the cross- past, present, future!  This is not a license to sin. On the contrary, when you really feel close to God, you will desire and want to do things that please him, and stay away from doing what is evil. But God doesn't change- even if you royally mess up, God is still there, doting on you. In the Bible the Lord says, "I have made, I will bear." God is not going to abandon anyone with sincere faith in the atoning sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. Salvaltion is by FAITH, not works! There is nothing you could ever really do to be "good enough". The Bible says our righteousness is as filthy rags to God.  So do yourself a favor and learn now what it took me 11 years to figure out:  GOD LOVES YOU!! HE IS NOT JUDGING YOU. YOU ARE NOT APPOINTED TO WRATH! THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST! You are all so wonderful, and Jesus said that " You are the light of the world!"  You are important and needed, and God offers you so much more than conditional love- he offer you a RELATIONSHIP based on UNCONDITIONAL LOVE that NEVER CHANGES. Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forever, and so is His love.  Won't you just love Him today, let Him be God, and stop trying to be "good enough"? Satan is the legalist, not God, so don't believe the hype. As Charles Stanley says, "Trust God, and leave all the consequences to Him!!!" I love you all. May God give you all the peace and blessings you need and desire, through Christ Jesus, Our Lord Amen! -  Amenti Nicole
