"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." - Blessed John XXIII
Jesus is denied as the only sovereign and Lord by supplanting His authority with an authority of their own. They have turned the grace of God into a commodity that can be bought, bartered or merited through indulgences and sacraments. They have perverted the Gospel of grace into a gospel of faith plus works.
Jesus loves me despite the fact that I fail Him everyday. Such a poignant truth. Stumbling over our flesh only proves we cannot do this Christian walk on our own. Thank You, God, for sending Your Son to hold me up. I cannot stand on my own.
