Have you ever wondered if you can be accepted by God, if you can ever be “good enough” for Him?
That He will be pleased with you, or that you can ever measure up to His standard? No, of our own selves, self-righteousness, or self-efforts we cannot, but, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ! Romans 5:1.
A verse that has helped me in times when I have faced those questions is Isaiah 53:11
He shall see the travail of His soul and SHALL be SATISFIED!
The finished work of Christ on Calvary’s cross was enough to satisfy the righteous demands of a just God for the penalty of sin.
Will you believe that? And receive it?
Don’t believe the lies of Satan that you can never be good enough. He is a deceiver and the accuser of the brethren. Rather believe 2 Corinthians 5:21 – For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
We can be righteous in Him, through the atonement He made for us.
God is satisfied that the price Jesus paid with His blood is enough to redeem us from our sin. In Christ we also can be satisfied that He is enough.
We can enjoy the peace of God in our hearts and rest in Him. Ephesians 1:6 – To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.
As a child of God, we are joint heirs with Christ, and can receive the blessed words the Father spoke to His Son at His baptism. This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. – Matthew 3:17
