The Good News

In Christ,

You are perfect and complete.

You are fully accepted and loved. You don't need to be better, more beautiful, funnier, smarter. You are utterly accepted in Christ.

You don't need to succeed. Christ has succeeded for you.

It doesn't matter if you fail. You're failures have been swallowed up in Christ's success. You may, in fact, be better off failing, so you're not tempted to trust yourself and instead can only place you're hope in Christ's success.

You don't need to be strong (you're not strong enough anyway for what is required, which is to be perfect as God is perfect); Christ is strong for you. You're better off weak, so you never forget only Christ is strong.

You don't need to do anything else. Christ has done everything for you.

You've got the Story right, my brother and friend. It's called the Good News, for sure.
