Don't forget to Give Yourself an A+

"At the end of the day, don't forget to give yourself an A!" 
I know sometimes we get hard on ourselves.   We sometimes hold ourselves, by default, to a standard of maybe our job, or our school, or our family, or our church...but we must remember:  When we die, none of these standards count when we die.   Remember, because Jesus is God's approval for all mankind because no greater love has it than one who would give his life, and Jesus, being both God and man, died on a cross for our sin.  Therefore, Jesus in our lives is once and for all, the purification, justification, and sanctification for our sin and for our identity in God.

Therefore, we are an A + in God's eyes all the time because of Jesus who died for us because of his love for us.

But after you have accepted Jesus to be apart of your day to day life, don't forget the reason why Jesus wants to be in your day to day life.  It's great to know that God accepts you;  now YOU NEED TO START ACCEPTING YOURSELF.   Give yourself an A+ Everyday.  Don't wait for somebody else to give it to you.  Give to God your best.  I believe this is saying give to God your greatest approval of yourself;  remember to stay humble and remember you can do nothing without Him; but don't undermine what you can do especially now since God is apart of every part of your life.  A.Paul said,  "We are more than conquers through him who loved us." Romans 8:37   Another way to say this is, "You and your performance is A+ all the time because of Him who cares for us."

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  Another way to say this is, "I am  

Remember:  at the end of the day, don't forget to give yourself an A!
