No Perfect People Here
This is hard for me: to let people see the flaws, admit a weakness, or ask for prayer because of a situation that I’m having a hard time with. I’d rather just have it all together – all the time. But that is not life for me…and can I venture…not life for you either. What if we laid down the masks on the way into church and not put them on? Instead of “OK, everybody act like we are the perfect family” (which we would never say with our mouths, but can communicate by our actions), we could come to church saying…
“We may not be perfect people, but we have a perfect God.”
“We may be broken, but we come to a God that can put the pieces back together again.”
“We may come with scars, but we come to a God who heals.”
May we come to church, not because we’ve got it all figured out, but because we are in need of a God who does. Not coming to be seen for who we aren’t, but coming to be changed because we are not yet what we want to be in Him.
