Admittedly flawed sinners are the most credible witnesses of Jesus, because people with scars can’t fake moral perfection. It’s glaringly apparent we can’t save ourselves. Wounded Christian warriors with scabby knees, bruised hearts, and even track-marked arms, who sometimes stumble yet always grab onto the arm of His Spirit in order to stand up again and again, exemplify the redemptive power of divine grace. We prove how miraculous and restorative the love of God really is.
Please don’t listen to the enemy when he tries to convince you it’s time to wave a white flag. To cry uncle. To stop believing and talking about how good God is simply because you’ve made some bad mistakes. Stand back up and keep walking in faith.
It’s okay if you’re a little wobbly. (from Stumbling into Grace by Lisa Harper, pg 189)
