Our Ugly Chapters

Moses had blood on his hands, Abraham was a bald faced liar, Elijah was at times a coward, Jacob was a liar and a cheat, Esther kept her faith a secret, Peter was a betrayer, and Paul was a murderer.

God is not put off by our ugly chapters and with his help, we can soon say what Paul came to say. But one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead.

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ, Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)
