Beloved, there will simply be days you will not be at your best as a Christian. We live in this fleshly body and we are not immune to attacks as the world also endures. Because you are a Christian, some will hold you in judgement or may condemn you for displaying passionate emotion. But, the Bible admonishes us to:
Be angry, and do not sin : do not let the sun go down on your wrath (Ephesians 4:26 NKJV).
I’m here to let you know that there will be bad days, and despite what peers may think or say about you, it only matters what God’s word says. If we reexamine the verse it says it’s ok for you to be angry, but the key words are, “do not sin”. If you may have sinned, do not allow voices you make you feel guilty or unchristian because you may have acted inappropriately. The important thing is to admit your fault, repent and ask God’s, and the person offended forgiveness. On the Christian road to salvation we are bound to have fender benders, accidents, and breakdowns along the way! As we grow in Christ we will learn to better depend on God to navigate those roads “under construction”, forks in the road, and detours. We come to God at different stages in our lives. Let God work on you where you are–without the guilt! You cannot change yourself, only God can! When you fall…fail, pick yourself back up, dust yourself off and begin again! That’s what I love about the Father; we can always start over and He will always accept us every time! Hallelujah! Be encouraged!
Come now, and let us reason together, Says the Lord, Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18 NKJV)
