God Loves Me

One night I was very upset. I was crying. I told my husband that I didn?t want to leave our house. I said, ?When I am out in the world, I always do something wrong.?
Then God reminded me of Romans 11:6, ?And if God chose his people by grace, then it is not the things they have done that made them God?s people. If they could be made God?s people by the things they did, then God?s gift of grace would not really be a gift.? God wanted me to know that He will always love me, no matter if I do right things or wrong things.
Our Bible Reading says that we are not made right with God by following a list of rules. ?It is trusting in Jesus Christ that makes a person right with God? (verse 16b). So I do not need to worry about making mistakes. I just need to trust in Jesus and His gift of grace.
When I become afraid, I remember Galatians 2:20: ?So the life that I live now is not really me ? it is Christ living in me. I still live in my body, but I live by faith in the Son of God (Jesus). Jesus is the One who loved me. He gave himself to save me.?
