To be forth right as a Christian is challenging not just some of the time but all of the time. To understand that, and yes God has great expectations of us sends ripples of fright down our spines sometimes. But through all of the anxiety that we ourselves put in the game. God knows us better then we know ourselves. His standards are not so high that we cannot forgive ourselves for our down falls. He does. Nothing says we will be condemned for our misgivings. There may have been a time way back when, that that deemed true. However we were sent a savior. A baby born to a family on the run. A homeless family. A family who treasured values. A family who so believed in God. Our savior was born of a women like you and I. He (our savior) had to be brought into this world like this to experience the journey man experiences each and everyday. He grew to be a man, a revolutionary of his time. Sought after because of his teachings. Eventually put to death for his beliefs, his teachings and his love for all men and women no matter from where they came.
Jesus saved mankind then and will until the end of our days.
1 Corinthians 4:14-16
I am not writing these things to shame you, but to correct you as my dear children. For though you may have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, because I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. I encourage you, then, be imitators of me
