If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are completely loved and accepted by God. Our righteousness is not based on good works, talents, or accomplishments. Our right standing before God is based fully on the work of Jesus on the cross. He paid the price to wash us white as snow. There is no price we can pay to add to that. Once we truly accept that truth, Jesus begins to work on our hearts, developing us into images of Him.
