My favorite part of the above sermon was when Matt said that the perfection I strive for and I define as success will NEVER happen. I will etch ahead slowly and stumble into eternity into the hands of Christ. I did not receive the Spirit by my works, rather by faith. Why am I so foolish to think I can be perfected by my flesh?
It kills me that I can’t reach perfection on my own. I have loved the book of Galatians. It has revealed the false gospels I believe. I am excited to continue growing within our community as we remember the true Gospel and the Holy Spirit moves among us. I am thankful to be a part of a church body that exhorts the bible and never leaves out the truth of who Jesus Christ was and is.
Ah…to be imperfect. May it resonate in my soul sooner than later.
