way: jesus

2

you were in your kitchen when someone knocked on your door, dusting your hands off on your apron you walked over and opened it.

a man with long hair stood there, “Hello, my name is Jesus, i just came to tell you that one of your people gave me a cookie you made and it was really good.”

you laughed, “thanks, i mean, you didnt have to come and find me to tell me yourself-”

“yes i did.”

I’M A CHRISTIAN

When I say that ‘I am a Christian’, I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I’m whispering 'I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.’

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I’m not bragging of success. I’m admitting I have failed and need God’s help to clean my mess.

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say 'I am a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou, I’m just a simple sinner who is saved by God’s Good Grace.

AMEN
