When my sister and I were younger we used to remind one another that ‘Pobody’s Nerfect!’
It was our human version of God’s grace. Once I became a believer in Jesus – ah! To understand that truly no one is perfect, that all have fallen short of the glory of God, is a very freeing space to be in. But I find it is sometimes a difficult space for me to stay in. I have all sorts of silly ways I try to hide my imperfections. The list is endless and embarrassing. But when I have the courage to stand in the light and in the full covering of Jesus garments of righteousness, I am free! And my relationships are rich as a result. The true essence of His church can now be expressed through me. I am part of the bride of Christ, clothed in white, loved and secure.
Pobody’s Nerfect. Isn’t that wonderful?
