I think we've finally turned the corner.
We're on the road to recovery.
I am glad God loves me icky-stuff and all.
God loves me in my "sickness", my brokenness, my sinfulness.
One woman I worked with once apologized for her language after finding out I went to church. I told her I wasn't perfect either and that was exactly WHY I needed church.
Many people I have encountered believe Christianity is only for the perfect. I even believed this too, in the past. I saw all the sinners among the Christians and thought they were hypocrites. I didn't get it.
God isn't just for the perfect, sinnless people in this world.
He is here for the broken, the sick.
On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Matthew 9:12-13 NIV
Perfect people don't go to church.
No one is perfect but the Lord Himself.
We are all sick. All broken.
We are all in need of a Savior.
I still have a long way to go and will always be sinful and never be perfect. But I am so glad I decided to turn that corner and made it on the road to recovery of my soul. And that I have the best physician in the universe.
My Lord, my Savior, Jesus.
