What happens when you fall in love with Jesus but there’s still some bitterness there? or… what happens when you love the Lord but there’s still this lust in your heart? Those voices inside of us constantly condemn us..”oh you can’t love Jesus, look at this lust you have in your heart that you can’t shake off.” “There’s no way Jesus loves you and you can love him.” So where am I supposed to go? Because apparently Jesus doesn’t work for me….
Praise Christ for Romans 8. Romans 8:33, “who shall bring any charge against God’s elect?” It is God who justifies. Who will even bring a charge against you? You’re mine! Keep walking! Keep pressing in! Keep confessing! Get help! Get guidance! BUT DON’T GIVE UP, I’LL HEAL YOU. I won’t let you go. There is no one who can condemn you. I don’t and if I don’t , no one can. The resurrection is power working in our hearts. Its not perfection, its power working in our hearts. Its as we stumble about on the path of sanctification, Christ holds fast. This is of first importance, 1 Corinthians 15:3, that Christ was crucified, buried, and raised. And for those who believe there will be no condemnation (Romans 8:1) no judgement, nothing will be able to separate us from the love of Christ Jesus. ~Matt Chandler
