You might be a Christian if you ... admit you messed up.
Come on - you're not fooling anyone. You messed up, I messed up. We all have. The Bible tells us we all have missed the mark (sinned).
No matter how hard we try, we just. Can't. Be. Perfect.
Oh, we might get close. We might have the perfect look, and seem super busy and organized, dwell in a beautifully decorated and operated home, drive the perfect car that combines a sporty look but yet delivers great gas mileage and makes other drivers drool with envy. We might have an impressive important job where we have power and authority. We might have the perfect looking family with a trophy-spouse and obedient beautiful children. But deep down, we know ... we have messed up.
It's just a matter time before the word gets out.
Christians know you don't have to be perfect - just forgiven. The first step to peace and forgiveness is simply admitting you've done wrong.
The Father is waiting with open arms!
I'm so glad you are here! Follow me each day as I attempt to define what a Christian is ... and isn't.
I'm always interested in your thoughts. Let me know if there is a word Christians use that you don't understand. I'd be interested to write about it.
