    Praise God for his love
    when the dust settles and the smoke clears all that matters is I hear the words " well done my good and faithfully servant "

    Repent, Listen HARD. Let him show you the correct path.

    We all come up short, none of us earn our way. We are all saved by grace.

    Don't let pride take hold.
    Stay humble.

    We are the servant, HE is the master.

    Accept that we all all fail, stumble and fall daily. All of us. Get up every morning praising him for another chance to try to do better.

    And most of all, it is not "Our" will, it is "THY" will be done, on earth as well as in heaven.

    Take care of yourself Charlie, you'll get there.

    ^^^ This is written to belivers, forgiveness of sins
    Not the remission of sins that occured when we are
    Born Again
    God provided this for the Belivers
    Paul sinned, we all sin.
    Don't be so hard on yourself
    Get up and keeping moving on the straight and narrow
    God Bless you Brother

    Meditate for a while on that verse. The very best I can do is vastly short of the Glory of God. In fact, he said that my righteousness - my good stuff - the best I can do - is 'filthy rags' to him. That is why I need Christ - without him I am hopeless and helpless. We cannot help ourselves, we cannot reach God's standard no matter what we do. All we can do is give up and accept Christ's sacrifice as complete ("It is finished" He said on the cross - at that point my sins were forgiven) and the only hope I have.

    "Filthy rags" are the rags used for a woman's menstrual period - in that society the last use of a rag before it is burned. That is God's value of my best. Sin is what I am, not just what I do.

    Well Brother, did you figure it out?
    Did you find peace?
    A report, good or bad would be appreciated

    Charlie, first...do not be so hard on yourself!!!

    We all have regrets. We need to recognize them and seek forgiveness. God will do that if we truly repent. Then we need to release those regrets and not let them negatively impact our lives. We learn from them, but they are not a yoke upon us.

    I really agree with USMC87....but I am agreement with all the posts....Charlie.....we are all short everyday...we just keep plugging toward salvation and rest assured that If you have proclaimed JESUS as your personal Savior you are truly saved....."no one will come to Me except through Jesus.....the Light, the Truth, and the Way! Paul

    Read Romans 7-8. Realize that 8:1 is a result of Paul's realization of the inevitability of sin in ch.7. Meditate on 8:1-2 for a while.
