Failure is never final for the follower of Jesus Christ. God's grace meets you where you are and the only way to truly fail is to not get back up after a fall. For many of us, it's not a casual view of sin that immobilizes us. It's the gravity of sinning against the Lord who bought us with His blood that brings us to our knees. But the good news is that we can get back up again:
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).
