When we do sin, God has given us the opportunity to repent. And a lot of people misunderstand the term “repent”
Repentance is not just simply apologizing for the sin you have done, but it also means to change, to turn away from.
Yes, we are saved no matter what if we have already received him as our savior… But, we still should try our hardest to live a pure lifestyle. Pure from sin.
We should strive every single day to be walking demonstrations of who Jesus is.
We’re humans, it’s natural for us to mess up… And anyone can mess up, but heres the test… Do we keep committing sins and brush it off? Or do we run to Jesus and lay it at the cross?
But I think as long as our heart is in the right place, and we keep trying to perfect ourselves, that eventually were going to become more and more God like. And as you keep making those changes, you become stronger every day. I think it’s kind of like working out, you have to exercise it every second of the day. You have to become a bodybuilder in His kingdom.
It takes a strong heart to come to the realization… That if I mess up, it’s okay because I know I am already forgiven. It’s okay because Gods grace is so sufficient! Grace. I freaking love that.
I love the comfort of knowing that He loves me so much, that when I mess up and fall down, he’s there to pick me back up and tell me to try again.
That feels so good!
