Title: The Calling
Series: Reconstructing Your Faith
Author: Randy Tomko
We know we’ll never be perfect. We fail. We hurt ourselves and others. We stumble and do stupid things. We foolishly hang onto damaging habits and hang-ups even though we know they are not good for us.
But when we turn our face towards our Lord and Savior our grasp on sin releases and in turn, its grasp on us releases as well. We can trust Him to remove the ugliest sins that have hold of us!
3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God[a] is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
