There’s an old gospel song that says A saint is but a sinner who fell down and got up. Whether we care to admit it or not, we have all sinned, we’ve all failed God. Proverbs 24:16 teaches us that the key to falling is in getting back up. What I love most about my walk with God is that each time I got up and dusted myself off, He was always there with open arms to accept me “as is”. Those same arms that were nailed open to the cross remain open today and invite everyone, regardless of their condition to simply “come”.
“Yes, come,” Jesus said. (Matthew 14:29a NLT)
