Come As You Are
Most people, deep down, fear judgment and condemnation from God and others, because when we get honest with ourselves, we know something's not quite right. Yet instead of turning to God for help, naturally we run from God. We run from the only One who can heal us, change us, and give us life. This is the central message of faith in Christ - that God will take anyone willing, regardless of what they've done or how bad they've been or how much they've tried and failed. And he will move us from this sin-cycle of shame, condemnation, and death to this state of full acceptance as adopted children.
