We all sin; some of our sins are big, some are small, and some are habitual, but we all sin. Then what? After we sin we might be tempted to give up on ourselves and expect God to give up on us, but that isn’t how God works. From the time sin entered our world in the fall, God has been using people who are flawed by sin to accomplish His will. He used Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, and the list goes on. But He doesn’t stop there. He also redeems those same sinners if they’ll accept by faith the grace and mercy offered in the cross of Jesus Christ. What is really important about all of this is that our sinfulness never takes God by surprise; our mistakes don’t leave Him scrambling. He knows our weakness (Heb 4:14-16), and He uses us anyway. May we be ever aware of the abundant grace and mercy that are ours in Christ, and may we accept that grace by faith instead of trying to manufacture worth by our good deeds. Wonderful grace of Jesus!
