If you call Jesus your Savior and your Lord, then please realize that you are a part of His family. You're not the neighbor kid who has limited access to God's grace. You are His family and you have complete access to His grace.

My spirit was made perfect through Jesus. But not all the old things passed away relative to my human nature. My human nature, my flesh, is a work in progress. While I am a new creation relative to my spirit—perfected in the image of God—my flesh is another story.

And as long as I live from the perspective of my human nature—my flesh—I will wonder what ever happened to that “nice” person I thought I was.

If you think that you can earn access to God's grace through your performance, then what will happen when you fall flat on your face? Yes, you will immediately disqualify yourself from any further grace—at least until you can get your game back on. And if you've ever tried to live this way (which I have), you will create a very stressful relationship with the Lord that has no joy and no freedom.

On the other hand, if you think that you have to earn God's grace, but you've spent most of your life falling flat on your face, then what are you going to think? Yes, you will think that experiencing the fullness of God's grace might be possible for some—but impossible for you.

Thanks to Jesus we are a new creation, old things have passed away, and all things have become new—new if we want it, that is.

The wear and tear of the inexcusable things that have happened to us are somehow reversed when Jesus tells us everything we ever did—when Jesus penetrates the superficial to expose what matters.

And we are set free to experience the fullness of His grace.

We just cannot drag our past into an encounter with God's grace and expect much, if any, results. We must somehow regain our childhood innocence in order to approach God's grace without all the disqualifications we put on ourselves.
