By Pastor Melvin O. Marriner
Too often, we are too critical of each other and ourselves. As I say often, I am perfectly imperfect in Christ. And, over the years, I rejoice in the fact that I learned to accept my imperfections, understanding that while I will never fully achieve perfection, it will not stop me from growing and loving God more and more each day. Do you know and appreciate that YOU are a miracle? God created you in His image, so you are special. God loves you and so do I!
You are a miracle. I am a miracle. Embrace that and believe it. My prayer is that you will grow in your love for Christ and the best way to do that is to spend more time with Him. Pray, meditate, study His Word and seek a personal and intimate relationship with Him. And, as you grow in Christ, you will more fully appreciate the miracle that is YOU!
