The other day, I was on my way to work. I walked outside, shut the door to my house behind me, got to my van, realized my keys were still inside. Inside the locked house.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the brightest tool in the shed, but this was especially frustrating because this is not the first time I’ve been separated from my keys by a locked door.
So I called my friend to give me a ride to work. She didn’t get upset about it. She knew that I needed her help, and she gracefully gave me a ride.
This story is not unlike my faith walk.
It seems that most of my sins are not new. Most of my sins seem to be repeat offences; the same things I struggle with over and over again. I feel just like Romans 7:19 For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do - this I keep on doing.
Fortunately, because of what Jesus Christ did for me (For an refresher of what Jesus did, read Mark 14:1-16:20), I know that I am forgiven. Even if it’s the same stupid things every time.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
