You are somebody special to God. Why? Because the blood of Jesus has dealt with every sin and failure that you ever committed and experienced, or that you ever will com- mit and experience.
Religion doesn’t teach that you are special. Religion wants you to remain “sin conscious,” meaning you are acutely aware of your short- comings before a holy God. While it’s true that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, this is the very reason Jesus had to come.
The blood of Jesus washed away every bit of sin and failure in your life—past, present, and future. As far as God is concerned, you are now holy, blameless and above reproach in His sight. You are God’s special treasure, whether you feel like it or not! Deuteronomy 7:6
Religion causes you to focus on your inade- quacy and failure, when you should be focus- ing on the blood of Jesus and all that He did for you. If you have received Jesus as your Saviour, you are not a worthless sinner. If you were, then the blood of Jesus didn’t work. I would never say the blood of Jesus didn’t work, because it did work!
