I'm Sanctified

Sanctified: To be made pure.

How can I be perfect and pure? I sin everyday, everyday I do the things God does not want me to do. I am pitiful, I am a weakling, a fool. So then if I am to follow Christ, what can I do about my fleshly condition?

Jesus Christ died for me. I can do nothing, for I am already sanctified.

That right. Everything I have done wrong, Jesus Christ has taken care of it. On my own, there is no way I can be perfect. I will utterly fail, and fail guilty and condemned each and every time.

As a Christian it is my respsonsibility to live as Jesus did. To love others, be kind. Yeah, there are days when I feel like bumping into the guy that just gave me the bird in traffic, or punching a customer at work who is being rude. There are days when I fail. But guess what?

Jesus is there for me.

Just think about it

Thank You for the Cross,
Thank You for tthe Cross,
Thank You for the Cross,
My Friend.

You really can't whistle?

Thanks for the compliment on my drawing. :-)

Yesterday I happened upon a Quicktime movie of a sermon on getting rid of emotional baggage through reading the Bible. For a long time I haven't been the Christian I should be. It's weird how when I started thinking about things I see that movie and you comment on my site.

Zarathustra tells me I don't even need to be forgiven, and I can have gay sex and listen to good music. His teaching also actually reduce my urge to punch rude customers at work. That's why I love him.
