RENEWAL Devotional: Margin For Error
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital
As believers, we sometimes might think that living a Christian life is going to be full of roses. Sometimes we forget that we are human beings and as long as we live on this earth, we will make mistakes. We do the best we can to please God, but, thankfully for us, He is also a merciful God.
God gives us His grace that is full of mercies. However, His grace is not for us to abuse. When we are struggling in life, due to circumstances beyond our control, we need to allow ourselves room for error. We are not perfect, but only perfect through Christ, who strengthens us to be more like Him everyday.
For God’s word says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. ” 2 Corinthians 12:9
