What’s your excuse?

You feel like you cannot possibly have a right relationship with God because you feel that you have done too many wrong things. Or maybe you feel that God just cannot work with you, and yet when you look at a number of Bible people you may be forced to rethink your perspective.

When you look at some of the Bible's characters, there are many men and women that God accomplished great things through in the Bible, but none of them (except Jesus) were perfect...

? Noah was a drunk! (Genesis 9:21)

? Abraham thought he was too old! (Genesis 17:17)

? Isaac was a liar, just like his Dad! (Genesis 26:7, 20:2)

? Jacob was a liar & a schemer! (Genesis 27:19 and many more!)

? Leah was plain (ugly?)! (Genesis 29:17)

? Joseph was abused! (Genesis 37:18f and many more!)

? Moses had a speech problem! (Exodus 4:10)

? Gideon was afraid! (Judges 6:27)

? Samson had long hair and was a womanizer! (Judges 16:17, 14:2, 16:1)

? Rahab was a prostitute! (Joshua 2:1, 6:17)

? Jeremiah and Timothy were too young! (Jeremiah 1:6, 1 Timothy 4:12)

? David was an adulterer and a murderer! (2 Samuel 12:9)

? Elijah was suicidal! (1 Kings 19:4)

? Isaiah preached naked! (Isaiah 20:2-3)

? Jonah ran from God! (Jonah 1:3)

? Naomi was a bitter widow! (Ruth 1:20)

? Peter denied Christ! (Matthew 26:69-74)

? The Disciples fell asleep while praying! (Matthew 26:40-43)

? Martha worried about everything! (Luke 10:40-41)

? The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once! (John 4:18)

? Paul persecuted Christians (1 Corinthians 15:9)

This is proof that God can work with anyone who humbly trusts in Him. So here is the important question you need to ask yourself; am I ready to step out in faith and trust God to save and change my life?
