Many times in life unfortunately religion makes us believe that Christianity is a set of rules. And we forget what Christianity really is all about, a personal relationship with our Savior, period.
Then unconsciously or consciously we do not approach God because in one way or another we have believed that we are not worthy. You think “I make so many mistakes, how can I go to church or how can I be truly Christian.”
Friend, I have good news! God does not seek perfection in us, to receive us. He knows our weaknesses very well. Our past or weaknesses do not surprise him. He is All-Knowing and there’s nothing you can do for him to stop loving you, absolutely nothing.
Read with me what the Bible states!
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. “Hebrews 4:15-16
My friend, there is only one Perfect ONE, so do not put that requirement on yourself to come to Him. Also, the beautiful thing is that although our God is perfect, he does understand us.
Jesus came to earth as an ordinary human being. He lived a normal life. He felt sadness, disappointment, pain, and even cried. But HE didn’t only suffer, he overcame all!
So dearest friend, come boldly to the ONE that understands you. Receive his mercy, his comfort, his strength, restoration and grace! Get the help you so much yearn. He can help you today.
Remember JESUS conquered death! So of course that He can help you conquer in your trial as well!
