"I have strayed like a lost sheep."
"We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each
of us have turned to his own way."
"All have sinned."
We don't really get it, Lord.
If we did, our world, America, churches, schools, families, and all of the below would be much different.
Honestly, we have not shaken off, cured, corrected, or exorcised instincts inherited from the garden.
Oh, we say we are born again from above, new creations, and the like; but looking around and within, it's/we're not that convincing.
We're selfishly self-righteous; which is why we recoil at the first stanza of Amazing Grace.
Mirrors lie unless reflecting Jesus.
Speck-inspecting is vision impaired by timber.
Fortunately, Your love is greater than auto-suggestion.
You're gospel: "While we're still sinning, You're still saving."
Slowly, we're learning praise and thanks more than petition and intercession dominate true worship for Christ's sake; in whose name we pray.
Blessings and Love!
