Even Christians easily forget the most important thing, namely:
“… I have come to save the world and not to judge it.” (Jesus in John 12:47; NLT)
Fear is always bad. Fear paralyzes, fear robs joy of life and energy. Organized religion has made God seem like a bad-tempered, punitive judge. But Jesus put the facts right again: God loves us. God wants to save us. God has sent Jesus so that we can unload all our guilt on Jesus. • Our sin debt was nailed to the cross
God has punished all of our guilt in Jesus. Once and for all. Do not forget that. God no longer holds anything against you (Hebrews 8:12).
You are blameless, rigthteous and holy before God (Colossians 1:22).
Build your relationship with God on this glorious foundation that Jesus acquired for you. You do not have to be afraid of God anymore.
