8 Marriage Plus: Nobody’s perfect

8 Nobody’s perfect

Adam and Eve sinned in the garden.
Noah got drunk.
Abraham twice put his wife in someone else’s harem.
Moses murdered a man.
Jacob was a liar.
David committed adultery and murder.
James and John kept losing their temper.
Peter ran away from the cross.
Thomas doubted Jesus Christ had risen.

I could fill in the blanks and mention every one of the major sins of men and women called by God or saved by Christ AFTER God had made himself totally known to them. So why does a husband or wife blame their spouse for being imperfect? We all have flaws as humans. That’s why Christ died for us and rose again for us. He’s not looking for perfection, but human’s who will take His direction, no matter how flawed they are. No one proves that better than a man who called himself “The chief of sinners” – the apostle Paul.

None of this excuses sin, but the blood of Christ canceled sin on the cross for every human who will sincerely ask Jesus Christ to be their one and only Savior (John 3:16–18). That’s all Christ asks so that He can forgive you of ALL your sins. If Christ forgives sins, shouldn’t we?
