The cross has made you flawless

The flesh tries to take what Jesus did for us and say “I didnt ask for that. I didnt ask for You to suffer. In fact, I didnt ask to even be here. To even be given the chance to sin. You sent me here knowing I would sin. I didnt ask for this so Im not going to made to feel guilty for it.”
But the spirit replies “the beauty of it all is that I didnt ask for it. I didnt ask for the opportunity to live this life, under this new covenant, and be led to the Jesus who saved me and gave me access to spend eternity with God. I didnt ask for the chance to one day be in heaven rejoicing with overflowing joy every second. I didnt have to ask. God sent me anyway. Jesus died for me anyway. I am in awe of the fact that God wants me here so one day I can be there. God wants to spend eternity with me! What Jesus did wasnt to bring me guilt but to release me from it.” I may have to suffer the battle of the flesh and spirit while I am here, but in the end the spirit wins. Even my flesh will be perfected on that last day. Flawless.

Love, God

I know you feel like you have an attitude right now. You fought a long battle today that no one knows about. You called to me for help, and we are winning. You are just tired now. Come to me and I will give you rest. You have gained endurance and strength. Tomorrow is a new day with new mercies. I am with you. Love, God

Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
