Don’t call unclean what God calls clean

 

What God says is what matters

 
When God calls you, rescues you from the pit of sin, He doesn’t leave you filthy and in chains. He doesn’t free you and then turn His back. You are wanted. You are loved. God tenderly takes you just as you are, and wipes away the dirt and the shame. You are priceless to Him. You are worth Him becoming your sin so you could become His righteousness. He paid your debt, in full. God clothes you in His finest robes and puts gold rings on your fingers. You are His treasure.

God redeems all your wrongs. He makes good from your failures and brings about His dreams for your life, according to His purposes. He isn’t embarrassed to be seen with You. What He says is what matters most. He chooses to no longer remember what you have confessed and humbly asked to be forgiven. He sets you on His path. He promises to never leave you, and He is true to His word.

So, don’t call what is clean to be unclean. You are restored. You are not who you were. You don’t have to live that way anymore. Your Father has given you a new life. Live in His calling. You are beautiful. You are filled with His Holy Spirit. You have purpose.

You are His.
