Mistakes

We all make them. If you think you don’t make mistakes, then think again. In this world nobody is perfect, and we all deserve to be punished for our wrong doing.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” – Romans 3:23

There is only one man who lived without making a mistake. His name is Jesus, he lived a righteous life. Even though He did nothing wrong, the government still condemned Him to death. Now that doesn’t really make sense, why would a completely innocent guy be condemned to death.

The reason for His death is because of all of us. He died so that we would not have to face the same punishment. He took the blame for all of us. It’s like when a friend sticks up for you when you do something wrong. Jesus is the best friend you could ever have. No matter what you’ve done, whether it’s telling a little lie, or even murder. God will forgive you, we just need to come to Him, ask for forgiveness and to turn from our ways.

‘Cuz we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I’m sorry
I can’t be Perfect
Now it’s just too late
And we can’t go back
I’m sorry
I can’t be Perfect
– Perfect by Simple Plan

In this world we can never be perfect on our own, no matter how hard we try. The song describes how impossible it is to please our parents when we make mistakes all the time. Sometimes we say sorry to the people we have wronged, but we don’t necessarily get the forgiveness we need.

God is different, even though He has much more power over our parents, He shows grace and mercy to His people. By the grace of God and Jesus who lives in me, I know that God has made me perfect in His sight. The blood that Jesus shed on the cross, has and will cleanse the sins in my life.

Receive the forgiveness Jesus has given you, even in his tremendous pain and agony, He still remembers you.

“Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” – Luke 23:34
