Pilgrim’s Progress: Genesis

There are 10 words that I can best use to describe myself:

  1. Liar
  2. Lazy
  3. Hypocrite
  4. Slanderer
  5. Adulterer
  6. Boastful
  7. Envious
  8. Broken
  9. Lost
  10. Sinner

No one person is perfect, if you are a Christian you’d be more familiar with this. We see from Genesis and throughout the Old Testament. Oh how many lambs’ blood was shed till the perfect lamb’s blood was shed once and for all!

My friend recently posted this on Facebook:

~Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abram was old & Lazarus was dead…..M ORAL: God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the CALLED! ‘re- post if u knw u r NOT perfect

This illustrates that man is ‘imperfect’, but instead of just sitting by and saying “His grace is sufficient” I will rather take up that cross and walk it out on Pilgrimage.  It will be a journey hopefully to last a few years, and more information will be shed as I take the walk myself. I was inspired by John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress.
