Thought for the week.

Archant

If I had a penny for everyone that said to me ‘I wish I had your faith’ then I would be at least a couple of quid better off than I am now!

I know what they mean, but I think that many of the expectations that people have of what Christians are (or should be) aren’t quite as the Bible says they should be.

Christians are those who are forgiven, no matter how unworthy they feel. We are loved, no matter how unlovable we feel. God is with us, no matter how bad (or good) we feel.

We don’t do miracles regularly, we take our place in the Church and we try, with the help of a loving God, to live up to God’s way of doing things. God doesn’t expect us to do the impossible. He just calls us to do our part, no matter how small.
