Ted’s comment a few posts back reminded me it’s been awhile since I visited Internet Monk’s blog. Always a blessing, he recently (re)posted a very powerful bit of writing entitled “When I Am Weak: Why we must embrace our brokenness and never be good Christians“.
It’s a point that has come home to me powerfully in a number of ways over the past few weeks. Jesus loves us, keeps us, provides for us, while we are yet sinners. Trying to make everything look like we’re “good Christians” is tearing us apart, especially those of us in leadership. One of the reasons the Christian life isn’t easy is because we are never good enough, and never will be in this life. But that’s OK — it’s our weakness and brokenness that Christ’s light and power shines through.
Great post. Have a look.
