Each day preach or rehearse the Gospel to yourself this way:

Seven Gospel truths to rehearse to your soul:

  1. I am saved. As soon as I repented from my sins and believed in the gospel, my sins were forgiven and I received the Holy Spirit. This is real. Romans 10:13; Ephesians 1:13-14
  2. I have Jesus’ perfect record put to my account. 2 Corinthians 5:21
  3. No longer is punishment due to me. Romans 8:1-4
  4. I can rest in the grace of God and my standing before Him regardless of my performance. my position is based solely on the work of Jesus and I have nothing to boast about. This is the antidote to my pride. Ephesian 2:8
  5. Jesus bore my wrath on the cross. This promotes in me a spirit of thankfulness and a hatefulness of my sin as I think about the great lengths God took to rescue me. Romans 5:9
  6. I am God the Father’s child and a joint heir with Jesus, part of His bride, one with Him as a recipient of His magnificent never-ending love! Romans 8:37-39; 1 John 3:1
  7. As I recognize and dwell on the Gospel, it motivates me to fight against my sin and fervently obey God out of love for my God and Savior. John 14:15; Romans 6:1-2; Galatians 2:20
