You can't get it right all the time.
I know I don't live as I should everyday.
Harsh language spills from my lips, I get angry, I hold out on forgiving others, sometimes I lie, and indulge in things I know aren't good.
I pray that these sinful flaws I have will be changed, but until then it doesn't make me less of a believer or child of God.
Sometimes, even as christians, we go through hard times and lose our way.
I lost my way.
It doesn't mean we aren't still believers or trying to walk the right path.
God still seeks out our heart and still loves us though we do wrong.
For even when we were sinners he still loved us.
"But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners"
Romans 5:8 NLT
Jesus lived the life we never could.
He lived in a sinful world and died a perfect man as a sacrifice for us.
He took on the full wrath of God, we all deserve, so that we could live freely in relationship with him and walk in forgiveness and grace.
Christians are human.
We all have sinful desires and all commit sin daily.
Bring perfect isn't what the Christian life is about.
We are to be examples of God's love and grace to others.
Meant to share his truth to the ends of the Earth.
We all fail and fall short of the glory of God. None are exempt.
"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins."
Romans 3:23-24 NLT
It can be easy to say, I thought you were a christian, when someone fails, but the right thing to do is come along side them in love and help them through their battle.
