God didn’t pick perfect people to make himself known.
Moses was a murderer. (Exodus 2:12)
David was an adulterer and accomplice to murder. (Samuel 2:11)
Saul (Paul) hated Christians and terrorized them. (Acts 8:3)
Jacob was a deceiver. (Genesis 27)
And yet, these people had a starring role in God’s purpose for his people.
What is his purpose for us?
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (The words of Jesus in Mathew 5:48)
We are to strive for perfection by making that phone call, paying that visit, forgiving that hurt, loving those who are difficult to love…and the list goes on.
We don’t have to remain imperfect people. Happy Sunday
