We are all Weak and Sinful

  1. We are all Weak and Sinful

    You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you. May
    those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the
    LORD Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because
    of me, O God of Israel.
    -- Psalm 69:5-6

    While we're all weak and sinful, and while we do have Jesus to
    atone for our sins and to intercede before the Father on our
    behalf, there are still a couple of big problems with our sin. This
    verse reminds us of one of them: we don't want our sin to be an
    embarrassment to God or his people. Let's avoid sin because that is
    what God wants us to do. Let's avoid sin so it won't reflect badly
    on God's people. But let's also pray for ourselves and our brothers
    and sisters in Christ that God will not allow our failures to bring
    shame on his Church, his Christ, and his cause.
  2. Amen, Dusty, and thank you~
  3. Amen Dusty. We are weak but he is strong. I'm learning to trust in his strength and not my own.

  4. God bless you Don.... We are all learning that too. At least I am.
