and when you fall

we all fall down

it’s inevitable – it’s going to happen

but, as a good friend of mine pointed out:
– the question is, in which direction are we falling?

are we falling toward Jesus or away from Him?

in our falling, are we drawn back to Jesus in the light
or do we cower and crawl back into the darkness

in our falling, do we realize our desperate need for grace?
or do we resolve just to ‘do better and try harder next time?

are you broken?
have you fallen?

– don’t scurry back into the darkness
– but stand up humbly in the gracious light

we are dead to sin – but alive in Christ
