One of the greatest lies Christians believe is that we have to add to the work of Christ.
In the past, every time that I wanted (needed) to spend time in the Presence of God I worked harder so he would not turn me away
I knew the presence of God. But it was a place I visited. I longed to dwell there but I never felt like I was good enough long enough to remain.
The final three words that Jesus spoke at the cross was “IT.IS.FINISHED!”
When the Truth of that sentence took the longest journey and moved from my head to my heart and then into my life it changed me! it changed my relationship with God

Please read this post from a year ago and let it invade your heart as it has mine
