“As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord . “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord .
Let’s face it, we are all flawed. I think one of the hardest things to fathom is that we, in our filthy rags, are somehow deserving of eternal salvation. Even after we’ve made a decision to ask Jesus to be Lord of our lives, we still fail and somehow think that at any second God will renege on His promise. I am so thankful that God doesn’t operate on a human level, we’d all be doomed. God’s promises are rock solid! Once we’ve taken Him up on His free offer and confessed our transgressions to Him, His Spirit is upon us and He will never leave us. Once we realize this we can stop trying to win His favor and realize we already have it.
