Jesus Lives

I am the perfect Savior—100 percent God and 100 percent man. I came to earth in a physical body so I could bear all the punishment for your sins. Because you are Mine, you are indeed holy in My sight, without blemish and free from accusation. I know you sometimes feel blemished and accused, but this is not your true identity. Now that you’re My redeemed follower, a good word to describe you is “blameless.” Since I paid the penalty through death for all your sins, you are utterly free from blame. There is no condemnation for those who are united with Me through faith!

Although you are forever free from accusation, you have a persistent adversary. Satan is a relentless accuser of Christians; he accuses them day and night. His demonic underlings, who seek to deceive and destroy My followers, rely heavily on this tactic. These evil spirits attack your mind with a mixture of lies and truth. To counteract their attacks, try writing down the accusing thoughts so you can pick out the distortions and outright lies. Once you have done this, the most effective response is straightforward: Reject the lies and distortions; repent of any actual sin. Remember, though, that the bottom line is not what you do but what I have already done—redeemed you fully so you can live with Me eternally. When the Son makes you free, you are free indeed!

But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.
~ Colossians 1:22

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
~ Romans 8:1 [NASB]

Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.”
~ Revelation 12:10

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
~ John 8:36 [NKJV]
