As the sun rises, I see things for what they are.
I see the mountains, the ocean, the birds chirping beside me, the rocks, the trees… All of God’s creations.
They are all perfect.
I start thinking about how God created all of this in 5 days.
On the 6th day he created his one and only imperfect creation. Man.
But why make something imperfect when you are perfectly capable of making them flawless?
My next thoughts are BECAUSE we are imperfect, God has given us the gift of seeing his grace and a savior that leads to eternal salvation.
Though we are imperfect, he is not. He made us perfectly imperfect.
Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin. (Romans 7:25 NIV)
