This Is The Truth.
I tried for years to be the perfect Christian. It would take many broken roads and heartaches to begin to grasp this truth: We’re not called to pursue perfection; we’re called to pursue Christ, who is perfect.
I don’t know what situation you’re facing right now, dear friend, but know that as you are, you are loved by God. It’s never been up to us to get everything right. Christ did that on the cross. As Philippians 1:6b tells us, “God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
If you feel you’ve fallen too many times, remember you get to start over and over and over again. Grace is undeserved favor. It doesn’t have a sell-by date. I read an old Chinese proverb that said, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.” With God, it’s never too late to start … again and again and again.
