Thought of the Day !!

He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.
                                              Colossians 2:14 (NLT)
 Have you sin in your life that you're are having trouble letting go of and making you feel like a failure?  God desires a repentant heart, one that longs to be more like that of Jesus.  But no where in all of scripture have I found that He desires us to feel like failures.  He wants us to accept His Son, trust Him, love Him.  If we do that we are truly successful.  The deeper we go into God's love and the closer we become with Jesus, the less difficult the struggles with sin will become.  That's because He will be the one we trust to defeat the sin in our lives instead of us trying to do it on our own.
Have you done something in the past that you still feel guilt and shame for?  If so, then you need to know that how you feel is not how God sees you.  Paul writes that Jesus canceled the record of you past.  It no longer exists.  There may be worldly consequences such as someone's feelings about you, but you are judged not by others but by a loving and merciful Savior.  Others will be judged by the same Savior for their possible lack of forgiveness.  As for you, know that the failures of the past can help us learn in the future, but they do not define who we are.  
In the love of Christ,
