If I was to introduce myself with one word it would be this: I am a sinner, plain and simple. There is no doubt in my mind that yesterday, today, and tomorrow I will consistently fall short of the glory of God. I am a victim of temptation, a slave to self preservation, and a puppet to all things worldly. I consciously choose my will over Gods everyday and then like a fool wonder why my faith hasn’t moved a mountain. I have let my doubts define my path and withhold me from pursing His.
So today I am going to step out of the boat.
I am tired of being the guy that sits in the pews thinking that I’m never going to be good enough to serve my purpose. Thinking that somehow my sin is past the point of redemption and that God’s grace doesn’t extend as far as my transgressions. Truth be told, I will never be good enough to enter Heaven, and I’m not sure that I will ever feel ready. So today, I am going to write this post as if my opinion matters. As if my words can move mountains because honestly, it doesn’t matter what value I or anyone else thinks that they hold. God knows the truth. Jump out of the boat and see what happens, your opinion matters to Him.
