Really, You Are Perfect?
Are we all perfect? As Christians, I mean. Do we let ourselves believe that we are better than those that struggle day by day to find a reason for their lives? How many of us keep the posture, the talk and the ways of Christian life to the human eye? At the same time in the dark, on the blinded side of the human eye, there it is, the emptiness, the struggle, the doubt and more than anything, our tired soul laying on the floor thinking the next breath is the last. We rarely want to admit this, not even to ourselves. We are tired! We are destroyed and we seem to have lost focus of everything or worst of who we are serving. We have lost our focus in Christ in the midst of situations, loss and the sorrows that accompany. It is a destroying moment when you realize that, yes, I am not perfect.
What do you do then? Let your self die? The confrontation is so abrupt inside of us. We are Christians! We should not live in defeat! Our life is of victory and triumph! That’s what we hear and are taught. Sure, that is true. What we don’t understand is that we will go through downfalls like any other. We will struggle and have to fight more than others. That is called my friend, vulnerability. We forget that we are still in this flesh fighting every moment to achieve to go everyday from victory to victory. Remember though, in the battles there will always be losses. The choice is ours. What loss do you want to experiment, the loss of those things that God wants to take out of our life so you will be more Christ like or loose yourself in the battle and in the end die without achieving nothing? This is when dependence on God would be our ONLY help.
It is that moment when a firm decision has to be taken. You accept your vulnerability. You refuse to fight with your strength, knowledge and will. You commence to deposit every struggle in the hands of God and see how perfect His grace is to sustain you. We are not perfect; we will never be on this earth. The guarantee we do have is that the perfect One sustains and strengthen us as we more draw to Him.
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11
