THOUGHT: Jesus accepts us as we are and makes us what we ought to be.
CHALLENGE: "Don't resist what Jesus is doing in your life. Avoid temptation, love your fellow man, and pray for His guidance."
REFERENCE: He saved us. It wasn't because of the good things we had done. It was because of his mercy. He saved us by washing away our sins. We were born again. The Holy Spirit gave us new life. God poured out the Spirit on us freely because of what Jesus Christ our Savior has done.
