Our Daily Grace: Loved, Not Condemned

 "We expect criticism, what we receive is understanding. Instead of hearing words of condemnation, we hear over and over again, 'I love you.'"

Mike Yaconelli

"Jesus said, 'I do not condemn you..'" 

John 8:11

He is compassionate, not vindictive.  He is gentle, not harsh.  He is accepting, not critical.  He is not inspecting us to find out our faults but is instead looking on us with understanding, sympathetic of all we're going through. He is everything we hoped He would be and so much more.  His love melts away our defenses and pours like cool water over our souls, healing us with kindness!

A thought: God is everything I need Him to be.

May the amazing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, and the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. 2 Co. 13:14
