Celebrating the Imperfect Christian

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor's Note: Inspired by Sarah Bessey's essay, "I Am Damaged Goods", Samara was moved to describe her own experiences and feelings about being a not-so-perfect Christian. --Heather

I am the messy kind of Christian who believes we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I am the kind that would rather reflect a joyful heart than a dishonestly perfect one. And He still loves me. He still loves me when I fail, day after day after day. Because I do. 

I’d rather sit in a room of nonbelievers than a room of arrogant, condemning Christians....
