There are three things God has never seen:

1. A person that has not sinned

2. A sinner He does not love

3. A sinner He cannot save

Voice of condemnation awakens us as well: “You aren’t good enough” “You’ll never improve” “You failed – again”

These are the voices in our world. They are also the voices in our heads. Who is this morality patrolman who issues a citation at every stumble? Who reminds us of every mistake? Does he ever shut up? Satan never shuts up. The apostle John calls him the Accuser. In fact he makes a career out of accusing. Unlike the Holy Spirit, Satan’s condemnation brings no repentance or resolve, only regret. Christ offers unending intercession on your behalf. He trumps the devil’s guilt with words of grace that leaves Satan speechless.

“…the kindness of God is meant to lead us to repentance.” (Romans 2:4b). Let’s listen to God’s voice.
