When you decide to go public with your beliefs and values, expect to be actively observed by friends, family, and acquaintances. Seriously! From that point onward people you know and love; even those you don’t know so well will be waiting in the alleyway of your life for you to do or say something ‘un-christian like’. It’s one of the most fascinating consequences of outward faith in my opinion. It’s innate in all of us to explore the fault within a person and hold it against them once it surfaces; thats the honest truth. Passing judgement is far easier than acceptance. Im not perfect, so if you are waiting for me to do something that isn’t necessarily Christ-like what i’ll say to you today is wait for it. Professing that you are a christian doesn’t mean you will instantly achieve perfection. In actuality, it’s a proclamation that you are beyond imperfect. The most carnal of carnal. It stresses that you have realized that you are capable of some really messed up thoughts and actions and that you need help that no person can provide you with.
Im not perfect. God see’s the filthy hollows of my heart and loves me regardless. I’m a sinner, and I don’t proclaim this to be downcast and condemned; rather, to be reminded of the price that was paid for me to have a chance. You don’t have to be perfect to come to know the saving grace of Christ.Im not perfect, but God wanted me just the way I was; and that goes for anyone. The realisation of his love molded me. If I waited until I was ‘good enough’ I would have never made the decision to believe. Day by day I am learning to run and not tire out as it says in the scripture. I’m a Christian and i’m nowhere near perfect – But God still loves me.
