Many believe, they have to straighten up first, to receive God and his grace.
God’s grace doesn’t wait for you to clean yourself up. God’s grace accepts you just the way you are.
Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) – for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
II Corinthians 3:18 (KJV) – but we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
