1 John 1:9 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 


I’m so excited to share this failure from yesterday!! My mom asked me to wash her car, and it made me mad because of the inconvenience. I got a little attitude and went outside to do it, grumbling all the way. As I was out there washing it, God started to deal with me on it, and it went a little something like this: “Well, son, you dropped the ball there didn’t, yah? Not only did you not give Me glory by doing it with a joyful spirit, but you also hurt your mom’s feelings by having an attitude. Now, you gotta wash it, and you’re not getting any credit for doing something good because you did it with the wrong heart!”  


Needless to say, I felt bad for acting like a child, but it also was uplifting because God was using it to teach me how quickly little things can get in there and throw me off! See, I’m not perfect; I am a sinner saved by grace, and I’m still a work in progress and will be till the day I die! Thank You, Jesus!!!


I wanted to share this to encourage us that God can use both our successes and our failures to teach, encourage, and love on us!! We are all going to sin and fall short, but the key is what do we do after we fall. Do we lie there in it or reach up and grab the hand of Jesus and try again!!!


You can fall 1000 times as long as you get up 1000 times, and He will love you the same as if it were the first time you fell!!! The Father’s arms are open wide!!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!!!!!!
