REPOST: Being the Church

——————————————————————————————-

I fell into a trap. A trap that says following Jesus means that every thing has to be okay…all the time. Last semester, I was plagued with this idea…this lie from the pit of hell. I hid my stress. I hid my fears. I hid my insecurities. Why? Because I want people to think I was okay. I didn’t want the Church to see me down. I’m too blessed to be stressed right? I mean what would admitting my faults say about my relationship with Jesus?

Know what I’ve discovered?

Admitting my faults says I need Jesus. Admitting my faults says I can’t do life on my own. Admitting my faults brings me to my knees. Admitting my faults points to my Savior’s face.

Church, you don’t have to be perfect. We weren’t meant to go through life alone, hiding. Wake up! Open your eyes…we are all hurting. We are all in need of a Savior.

His grace is sufficient…are we living like it?
