BUT when Jesus was on earth He entered right into all the grime and was the most real, down to earth person of all time. And He didn’t just play in the mud. He lifted those around out of it and helped them see that He had come so that they would have life and have it to the full. He helped them know His voice and see that He could (and did!) CHANGE EVERYTHING by dying on the cross, rising again and paying the price for their (OUR) mess.
And He does that now for each of us. He tells us in John 10 that HE is the gate and whoever enters through Him will be saved. Will our lives here then be easy, clean and spot free? NO! At least mine isn’t. How could it be when His life here was far from it?
Prayer: Lord thank you so much for being with us in our messy lives. Help us to know in our hearts and head that this is true.
