Bold and Free

1 John 3.21
Once that's taken care of and we're no longer accusing or condemning ourselves, we're bold and free before God!
amen! this continues yesterday's word, For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves. vv. 21-24 go on to read, "once that's taken care of and we're no longer accusing or condemning ourselves, we're bold and free before God! We're able to stretch our hands out and receive what we asked for because we're doing what he said, doing what pleases him. Again, this is God's command: to believe in his personally named Son, Jesus Christ. He told us to love each other, in line with the original command. As we keep his commands, we live deeply and surely in him, and he lives in us. And this is how we experience his deep and abiding presence in us: by the Spirit he gave us." amen! this is the only way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. thank you lord!
