"Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way. Psalm 25:8 (ESV
Moving towards Christ reveals our impurities. It’s not that He points out our imperfections to make fun or show us how horrible we are. But God has provided for us the Living example of perfection through His Son Jesus Christ.
Imperfection is recognizable when we are moving towards perfection. Pursuing Christ intentionally means we are moving towards His example consciously aware that changes are made little by little through His provision and grace. Our God is still in the business of deliverance, but most will be tested to the limits because it’s in the testing that our faith grows. It’s such a beautiful thing to advance into the depths of Christ.
Being exposed to His perfection gives way to growth and change. Through His guidance, we receive the love that builds up. His guidance is not constructive criticism; instead, I lead, you follow. He teaches us to swim, and how to walk on water by faith and when it seems like sinking is unavoidable, He comes to our rescue. Walking with God is a journey worth living. Today is the day to rest in the presence of His perfection.
Lord Jesus, help me not to be afraid to enter into your light. Help me to be okay with You picking out the things that need work and allowing you to do what is necessary. I trust you to do what is best for me, even when it may be difficult. Amen.
