Falling Short?

Have you fallen short this week? That character flaw you thought was overcome pops its ugly head up again. Maybe what you did even shocked and surprised you. You thought it was not a part of your nature anymore. I’ve been there. We may be shocked and surprised by what we did, but God wasn’t. He knows our ilk, our fallen nature to the core. That’s why Jesus had to become fully human and overcome the ugly nature of sin in his own body. And, even now, when we lose our battles with sin, he is still there as our high priest, covering our sins with the shed blood of his holy sacrifice. May the joys of this season remind us of the marvelous Gift we have been given. Merry Christmas!
