So often I fail. I fail to be loving towards others. I fail to honor God with my attitude. I fail to represent Christ to those around me. I fail to act in humility.
“Yet one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV84)
Thankfully God has forgiven me through Jesus Christ my Savior. He already paid the penalty for my sins by dying on the cross in my place. And He continues to work in me, growing me and changing me to be more like Christ. He doesn’t give up, even when I fail Him. “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6 NIV84) If you want to know more about this life-changing gospel, please go here.
Don’t give up, fellow Christian! Even when we fail, God’s grace is abundant.
