Messy, Yet Hopeful

"We are messy, in need, prideful and do stupid things, but we are followers of the One who heals us." ~ Perimeter Church Bulletin Message

We are often messy, prideful, and hypocritical. But what is the Church if not a refuge for human beings that know they are in desperate of a savior? The story, however, does not end there.

Today is Easter, the day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today, above all other days, we are reminded that our debt has been paid and that we are united with Christ in His resurrection. The Image Absolute is recreating the image of God in us daily through sanctification. So we may fail but we are getting better because of "the One who heals" and we have the assurance that "He who began a good work in [us] will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:6)

Happy Easter

By His Grace,
