I had a friend who told me that she would start coming to church with me once she got her life together. She said that she was too messed up to go to church and needed to work on herself before she felt like she could go to church.
If you wait to go to church until you’ve worked on yourself, you’ll never go. That’s like saying I’m going to wait until I’m no longer sick to see a doctor. If you’re sick, you need to see a doctor then, not when you get well. In the same way, if you’ve not got your life together and you’ve got sin in your life, that’s the perfect time to get yourself into church.
God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant.
– Romans 5:20
Today’s Bible verse talks about how the law was given so that we could see how sinful we are. And as we realize how sinful we are, we realize that we can’t get rid of sin on our own. We need God to help. God’s grace is always more that enough to cover whatever sin you have in your life.
So if you’re going through something or if you have sin in your life, don’t hide from God or feel like you need to get things together before coming to God. Rather, go to God. Get His help. Walk life with God and have Him help you fix the sin in your life.
