“Let him, who is without sin, cast the first stone!”
Life as a Christian… if you’re good, people will say you’re fake or acting like a goody-two-shoes or you’re boring. If you’re not so good, if you do one thing that a Christian is not supposed to, if you’re doing 99 things right and you slip up one time, do one thing wrong, you’re a hypocrite! not fit to be a Christian. You should not talk to anyone about God because you are not perfect! That is what you will hear from people… my point? Whether you’re good or bad, people will talk about you, people who sin the same as you will cast stones and try to discourage all your efforts of even trying to be who God created you to be.
Don’t listen to them! Never ever listen to them, nobody is perfect and no one should expect you to be! The only opinion that matters should be God’s opinion of you. He forgives you, he loves you and he wants you to come back to him. All he wants from you is to believe in him and trust him, let him back into your heart and do not be ashamed.
I’m not saying that it’s okay to sin, I’m just saying that the fact that you sinned does not disqualify you from being Christian, it doesn’t mean that you can’t go to church anymore, you can’t talk about God or can’t ask for forgiveness. You know right from wrong, and you know its always better to do what’s right…but we all have sinned and fallen short, the biggest mistake that most people make is feeling so unworthy that they choose not to return.
God is waiting for you, with arms wide open. Don’t let your fear or the opinion of other people hold you back. This life of yours, whether you’re worthy or unworthy or whether you’re good or a hypocrite that’s between you and the one who created you!
