When Tempted To Despair Over Our Sins

It's not unusual for a believer to feel condemnation within themselves because of their sin, but we must remember our great Savior and His finished work: 
When the devil throws our sins up to us and declares that we deserve death and hell, we ought to speak thus: 'I admit that I deserve death and hell.  What of it?  Does this mean that I shall be sentenced to eternal damnation?  By no means.  For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction in my behalf.  His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Where he is, there I shall be also.' ~ Martin Luther
