…that I am not perfect. I know no human being that is perfect. No one has perfect theology or perfect beliefs or perfect opinions. No one denomination has it all completely right. I open my mouth and wonder where the words that tumble from my tongue have come from. I speak stupidly just as quickly as any of my brothers or sisters in Christ. I mess up. We mess up. We are broken people, and the only way we are made whole and beautiful is through Jesus Christ. I’m not holier than you and you are not holier than me. Jesus is THE Holy One. Any holiness or righteousness attributed to us is in Christ…grace…mercy. Only these…only He makes us worthy.
God, have mercy on us still. Please do not remove your patient mercy from our lives.
