Like Rick said, we are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ, which lifts the burden of performance from our shoulders. God knows our mistakes before we make them and chose us as His own anyway. Allow that truth to give you the confidence to minister in your imperfections knowing that you are adopted into the family of God through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
