Hello, sons and daughters of the King!
This week’s Bible verse I stumbled across in my Bible App, when I was doing a devotional:
I don’t mean that I am exactly what God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal. But I continue trying to reach it and make it mine. That’s what Christ Jesus wants me to do. It is the reason He made me His.
I love this verse because EVERY. SINGLE. HUMAN. BEING can relate! Philippians 3:12 tells us that we are not perfect, because we are humans. Because we are humans, we are sinners. But our goal should be not to sin, but not to sin. God wants you to keep trying to reach that goal of being a Godly person so you can spend Eternal Life with Him in Heaven! It is the reason you are His, it is the reason the Shepherd looks over us, his sheep.
