Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. ~ Romans 8:34
Never get caught up believing God punishes and casts us away as condemned lives. If that were true, He wouldn't have given His only son to die just so we could live!
Everyone who kneels his heart to Christ has life! And Christ is steadily pleading our case before the Father to show us as salvaged and repurposed men of God.
So, when you feel like the black sheep, or feel that you've gone too far, or spent too many years running the hard roads - remember this: God is in the salvage business, not the condemning business.
