I am a sinner.
This is no shocking confessional, nor will it be news to anyone that knows me. But I need you to know, that I KNOW, I am a sinner.
On my best day. In my best outfit. I am a sinner.
Every day I seek to show the people I encounter the love of Jesus.
A perfect love.
An everlasting love.
A non-discriminatory love.
An unconditional love.
A forgiving love.
An eager love.
A merciful love.
And I fail…every day.
But I will not stop trying. I will not stop seeking Him. I will not stop seeking opportunities to serve Him. I will NOT stop sharing His love to the best of my ability every day.
I will not quit on Him.
God chose us. Each and every one of us. Sinners on our best days. God sent a supernatural solution in Jesus to pave the way for our souls to enter eternity. He chose US.
Do not squander His sacrifice. Share the sacrificial love of Jesus to the best of your ability EVERY DAY.
Fail…every day. But do it anyways.
Because it is right. Because it is good. Because it is for Him.
Colossians 3 23-24 reminds us…
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” (Emphasis added.)
“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge your flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13
God loves me…sinner status and all. My job is not to judge you, to condemn you, to reform you, nor to redeem you. My job is to LOVE you.
