I am human. I am whole. I am a sinner . The message this week essentially, “if you’re going to talk the talk, you need also to walk the walk.”
I became a believer in His word and took Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior September 9, 2001. From that day, I’ve known I’m a sinner. I haven’t murdered, stolen. I’m not a sinner to that magnitude, but a sinner I am. I know right from wrong and am still working to be an example for Him.
Being a Christian doesn’t give me a free pass to do whatever I want simply because I’m forgiven. Nope. It means I have to work twice as hard because if I’m going to claim Him, I need to say it and act like it. I don’t act like it now.
1 John 3:18-19 says, “Dear children, let us not live with words or speech but with actions and in truth. This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in His presence”
Actions do speak louder than words. Right now, my actions aren’t with good intentions. My actions are not admirable. The actions I’ve chosen are those of a sinner. No, I’m not ready to knock on my neighbors door and hand them scripture. But I know I’m wrong. A, admit. That is what I’m doing. Admitting.
I have a lot of work to do. Restructure and give my sins to Him so he can shine His light and give me strength through this mud I’m walking.
