Each day I’m reminded about far I am from actually living up to God’s standards and some days I honestly feel like a failure. It seems as if I overcome one obstacle just in time for my next weakness to be exposed. I have confidence that God is working in my life and changing me, but I’m always aware that I have a long way to go. I’ve become accustomed to feeling a little behind and I believe a lot of Christians feel the same way. During these times of guilt and frustration, we must remember that God does not love us based on performance. Performance based love is human. God’s love is supernatural. He loves us even though we are not deserving.
Whether you measure up or not, God loves you.
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:6,8
“But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” – Ephesians 2:4, NLT
