Inside Out Project // Day 5

How are you doing on your Inside Out Personal Transformation Project?  If you’ve missed a day or two, don’t beat yourself up with guilt.  Just get back with it today.

It’s so easy to turn our joyful relationship with Christ into a ‘to do’ list to check off seeking to win God’s approval.  Remember, you already have God’s approval if you’ve received Christ’s gift of salvation.

         “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus ….” Romans 8:1 (NIV)

Don’t condemn yourself when you fail and sin, because Christ was already condemned in your place!  There is nothing you can do to make God love you any more or less than He does right now.  He wants you to make the changes you need to make because He wants the best for you.  But, He doesn’t condemn you when you fail.  When you sin, quickly come back to Him and ask for His forgiveness and move on.  TODAY is a new day, and God loves you so much, and He has a good plan for you.  He hasn’t given up on you, and He will finish the work He started in you!

         “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6 (NLT)

We will take a break from the blog for the weekend, but continue on with your Inside Out Project and we will be back on Monday to give you coaching and encouragement for Day 8!
