A Fellowship of Sinners

Episode 13,   Aug 21, 2023, 12:46 PM

Christ works in the light. Forgiveness happens in the light. Confession is often difficult for us because we have created a culture of seeing the church and each other as a fellowship of saints- we think everyone else around us has taken all the right steps to heaven, the water cleaning them in baptism and they’ve walk the straight road daily, advancing further into holiness than we feel we can achieve- as if
we will never be worthy of the salvation Christ sacrificed his life for. If we can open our eyes and hearts and minds and understand the church is NOT a fellowship of saints, but a fellowship of sinners, we know we are not alone in our sin- we know that we don’t need to feel shameful or isolated.
