Have you messed up somewhere in life? Perhaps you had a misunderstanding with someone and they shut you out of life? Maybe you were put on probation at work or even worse, fired. A disgruntled spouse filed for divorce siting 'irreconcilable differences' and broke up a family. Maybe your church even shunned you, which I often have a hard time understanding how the body of Christ could shut hurting people out, but some do. They 'shoot their wounded' so to speak.
First of all scripture tells us in Romans 3:23 that " we have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory" and in Romans 3:10 says "there is none that is righteous, no not one". Remember the verse in John 8:7 that says "let he who is without sin cast the first stone"? Also "be careful lest you also fall" which is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 10:12. In Ephesians 2:8 it says " By grace you are saved by faith". Then there is the verse which reminds us we have all 'been there, done that, got the tee shirt shirt' so to speak in 1 Corinthians 6:11 when it reminds us "and such were some of you."
Mere man may fail us and set up their own list of requirements for how you can be accepted and loved but God is not like that and aren't you glad and breathing a sigh of relief?
PRAYER: Thanks Lord that you allow me to start again when I have made a mess of things. Sometimes humans will reject us but you NEVER do and for that I praise you and thank you. Forgive me for my sins Lord. I want to live a life that brings glory to you. In Jesus name. Amen.
