Dear Jesus

Remember that your relationship with Me is saturated in grace. Therefore, nothing you do or don’t do can separate you from My Presence.

Dear Jesus, 

I am so thankful for Your grace. When I’m keenly aware of having failed You, I grasp on to grace for dear life. Feelings of guilt and fear conspire to convince me I have lost Your Love. My sense of unworthiness tempts me to punish myself for my sins. Then I remember You have clothed me with garments of salvation—arrayed me in Your own righteousness. My salvation is all about You and what You have done to rescue me. Help me feel more secure in Your Love.

Beloved, it is utterly impossible for Me to stop loving you. Your relationship with Me is so saturated in grace that the two are forever inseparable. Meat that has been marinated in a sauce cannot become unmarinated. The longer it soaks, the deeper the marinade penetrates: flavoring and tenderizing the meat. You have been soaking in grace ever since I became your Savior. The longer you “marinate,” the more fully My grace permeates our relationship. It is impossible for you to become un-graced! 

I want you to rest in the perfection of your salvation. My glorious grace makes you holy and blameless in My sight. So, nothing you do or fail to do could ever separate you from My Love.

For by grace you have been saved through faith.
~ Ephesians 2:8 [NKJV]

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:38–39

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.
~ Isaiah 61:10

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
~ Ephesians 1:4–6
