Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It’s the perfect drink if you want to discover the JOYful way of life!
Many of us like to aim toward perfection. We don’t like to make mistakes. And there is something to be said for giving our best efforts. However, we must remember that human beings are not perfect creatures. We all have our weaknesses; as hard as we try not to, we are going to make mistakes.
We’ve all heard the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But Jesus taught, “If it ain’t broke, it can’t be fixed!” He said, “...It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick … For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners” (Matthew 9:12, 13b).
God knew when he created us that we were going to be broken people. He made us to need Him. If we were perfect, we could make it through life without God. He desires a personal relationship with each of us and wants us to call out to Him in our times of weakness and imperfection.
In Psalm 18:30 we receive encouragement from these words:
“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”
His way is PERFECT…..Though we will never be! We can take refuge in our perfect Savior. Doesn’t that soothe your fears and wash you with a sweet peace and JOY?
The Word of God is flawlessly perfect, so let’s drink the JOY JUICE that comes from following His way.
