Father, help me to resist the concept that I have earned a place in Heaven with You because I have done more good things than bad. For nowhere does it say You are keeping a list and when our life on earth ends decide where we go based on which column is longer. No.
You say You case our sins as far as the east is from the west. Your word also says "he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit." (Titus 3:5).
Lord, wash away my sins, give me new life, free me from the fear that I'm not good enough, and free me from the exhausting work of trying to be perfect for You. Today, I accept Your mercy. -In Jesus' name, Amen.
