Being good or being loved.
When we trust God in his work in our lives, and we long to be empowered by him, we begin to realize that we’ll never be good enough. We could never earn his grace. We could never make up for the gift that he has given us. His love and grace are so great that we could never earn.
This is a beautiful thing when we realize God knows we won’t “make it up” but that he never expected us to. He wants our lives to change, but not because we owe him. He wants our lives to change so that we can be more like him. He wants us to change, but for our betterment. We need stop looking to be good enough, we need to be loved.
