Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. -2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV) 

We all at times may feel defined by our failures or what we are able to accomplish. This leaves us in a never-ending cycle of comparison, self-condemnation, and insecurity. Because the truth is that we are imperfect and we aren’t worthy of what God has done for us. Grace can be really uncomfortable. We may squirm around anxiously in the embrace of God’s grace because we know we don’t deserve it. We subconsciously try to earn grace but it is a free gift. Our Savior is worthy. He is all-sufficient. And He is the One that gives us our identity. He paid a great price so that we could have this identity. 

Your past doesn’t define you, your sin doesn’t define you, your abilities don’t define you. God defines you. He says you are brand new. He is restoring all things for His glory. He is restoring us to our original purpose.
It's all by His grace alone. 

Its not about what you did but about who God is. Step into the grace He is pouring out to you. Believe in His grace so that you may love God more passionately as you receive His grace with joy. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. You are free indeed! You are new, redeemed, loved, and upheld. 

You truly are a new creation in Christ!
