But the worst labels are the ones we place on ourselves...and those are too painful for me to list...
The self inflicted labels are the worst because they sound true...they are hard to ignore because deep down you know they are true, at least partially...
But God sent his own son to bear the punishment that we rightfully deserve!
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit."
God doesn't condemn me for my sin. He Saved me from the punishment I deserve! I need to quit condemning and punishing myself for sin that God has already forgiven. Those self inflicted labels may sound like truth, but God has already washed them away.
I AM a sinner, but the only label that truly matters is that I am SAVED from the law of sin and death!
What labels hurt you the most?
