Jesus = Freedom


Many people, even in the church, suffer from self-rejection. This type of thought pattern can persist for years, sabotaging the truth about who we are in Christ and how valuable we are to our heavenly Father. When such a lie reigns in our mind, feelings of worthlessness follow. If you’ve received Jesus Christ as your Savior, you’re accepted by God – not based on your performance but on Christ’s substitutionary atoning death on your behalf. This is the truth that should govern your self-perception. But eliminating wrong patterns of thought and behavior takes more than simply knowing why you’re accepted. To develop a healthier outlook, you must saturate yourself with God’s Word so the Holy Spirit can renew your mind with truth and reveal any unbiblical thinking.
