A Constant Need

June 24, 2015, 3:02 PM

Failure is a part of life.  Everybody fails at various times throughout life.  There is no one who has not experienced the sting of failure.  The Christian life is no different.

For the Christian, sin is failure.  Failure to meet God’s high standard for living.  Failure to live a righteous life.  It is a life that in our own strength is impossible to live.  We need God and His strength.  We constantly need Him because we fail often. 

We fail/sin when we depend on ourselves, our strength and our ways of living.  Our Failure/Sin reminds us of our constant need for God.  So when you fail, or when you sin, let it draw you back to an utter dependency on Him.

When God draws you back to himself, He will do so with loving open arms…Because He is God and He knows of our  constant need of Himself.
