What did you screw up recently?
How’s that for the start of a blog post?
I don’t know about you, but I screw up daily. I sure need God’s grace. I crave it. I ask for it. I confess I need it. Every single day.
As the Lutherans would say: We confess that we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves. We have sinned against you in thoughts, words and deeds; by what we have done and what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
And one of the best parts about being a Christian is God knows that I am trying to do the right thing, He sees I can’t do it all the time, even expects it, and He loves and forgives me anyway.
Yep, I need a dose of that every day.
