The other day I read an article on faith that blew my mind away. I read it in the website I've mentioned once: Answers to Tough Questions. (written by Dan Vander Lugt)
Here are the lines that blew me away:
1. If we believe that our faith must be perfect, we have established an unattainable goal and enslaved ourselves to a new form of works-salvation.
2. People who think that their faith must be perfect before it will be acceptable to God ignore dozens of scriptural examples of people whose trust in God was imperfect, yet their faith was still accepted by Him. (There are also examples from the Bible, click the article to read them)
3. ...it isn't the perfection of our trust that matters, but the perfection of God's love and forgiveness.
WOW!!! I never really dwelled on this before. I know my faith is nothing compared to lots of people out there. However, what counts is God. That God doesn't compare me with anyone else. That HE stays the same even though everything surrounds me changes. He knows I'll screw up every now and then. He knows that my faith wavers. He knows how hard life can sometimes be, yet He is still there for me. He doesn't compare me with anyone and I'm SO grateful for that!!! He is LOVE and He'll always be love. I've just begun to make little steps to learn His love and I'm already amazed. I'm truly looking forward to being more and more amazed by Him.
