Do you shrug your shoulders and say, “nothing to do with me”

It doesn’t matter who you are, you have sinned.  God tells us clearly in his word that we are all sinners, all have fallen short.  The great news is that we are justified freely if we want to be.  We need to recognise our sin and desire to change.  Granted, we won’t always change immediately but if we have the intention to repent and move forward with God he gives us the grace to complete that work and serve him.

Romans 3:23-24 – for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus


Look me in the eye and tell me you are without sin, search deep within, what hurts, what bitterness, what anger, is there a danger that you may be more sinful than you let on, it’s not all about the big sins, breaking the commandments, it’s as much about what you think as what you do, or just maybe it could be about what you don’t do, your lack of humility, lack of love, do you turn your back on humanity when all that’s needed is a hug, do you shrug your shoulders and say, “nothing to do with me” when you see on the TV pictures of war and depravity, hunger and bankruptcy, is life all about you, happy selfies, making earthly memories, thrill seeking extremities, sparkling accessories, t-shirts emblazoned “it’s all about me”, let’s talk about the vulgarity of wasting our prosperity whilst around us others live in poverty, is God calling you to sincerely search your heart, God who will set you apart when you look up from your self-centred life, recognise his awesome sacrifice was because of your sin, no such thing as sinless unless of course you include Jesus, not one of us is worthy to be on this journey of discovery with God, yet he has found it in his heart to forgive us our sins, let him in now, admit you’re a sinner, repent of your innermost thoughts that don’t honour our Lord, for all fall short of his glory yet God forgives us freely, just as I am I kneel at his feet, he takes my sin, he makes me complete.
