Sometimes, Do As I Say and Not As I Do, Can Save Your Eternal Life

If God only used perfect people to get his work done, he would never have any workers. If we set our eyes on some man and ministry, we will see things that will make us stumble, so keep your eyes on God. This is never to excuse our shortcomings, but it’s amazing that scripture exposes the weaknesses and sins of every “hero” in its pages.

Perhaps one of the reasons God exposes the weakness of men in the bible is because it points to their need for a Savior. We cannot read scripture and worship Abraham, Moses, David, Paul, etc.. Their weaknesses point to the one who will deliver them, and He is our deliverance as well today.

Romans 7:23 – but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.24Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death?

  1. How true!!
    It seems though many have missed the LESSON that we are not perfect only CHRIST is perfect.
    So thru the Savior we have redemption and as we strive to do his will , we strive for perfection.
    I think it will only come at death of the FLESH which is sinful.
