We are all Weak and Sinful


We are all Weak and Sinful

You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you. May
those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the
LORD Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because
of me, O God of Israel.
-- Psalm 69:5-6

While we're all weak and sinful, and while we do have Jesus to
atone for our sins and to intercede before the Father on our
behalf, there are still a couple of big problems with our sin. This
verse reminds us of one of them: we don't want our sin to be an
embarrassment to God or his people. Let's avoid sin because that is
what God wants us to do. Let's avoid sin so it won't reflect badly
on God's people. But let's also pray for ourselves and our brothers
and sisters in Christ that God will not allow our failures to bring
shame on his Church, his Christ, and his cause.
