Please study what the Bible says about being justified.
When a person truly understands this, he/ she is set free knowing that they are accepted by God.
So many people today are striving daily to be saved, when they could be or should be resting in the LORD’s finished work for them. This resting is blessing.
It is a very hard life to strive all the time, Jesus came to give us more than that, He has justified us!
“Therefore, since we have been justified [that is, acquitted of sin, declared blameless before God] by faith, [let us grasp the fact that] we have peace with God [and the joy of reconciliation with Him] through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed).
2 Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power].
3 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;
4 and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation].
5 Such hope [in God’s promises] never disappoints us, because God’s love has been abundantly poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
6 While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation], at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly.
7 Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to willingly give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a good man [one who is noble and selfless and worthy] someone might even dare to die.
8 But God clearly shows and proves His own love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Therefore, since we have now been justified [declared free of the guilt of sin] by His blood, [how much more certain is it that] we will be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved [from the consequences of sin] by His life [that is, we will be saved because Christ lives today].
11 Not only that, but we also rejoice in God [rejoicing in His love and perfection] through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received and enjoy our reconciliation [with God],” Romans 5 :1-11(AMP).

I pray that some striving and unsure person, will read the above and for the first time ever, discover what it means to be saved [born again by grace through faith].
LORD, help those who strive find true rest and be saved and set free! Amen!
