Imperfect Examples - Thursday, July 26th 2012

1 Corinthians 15:5

"and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve."

If anyone had a reason to doubt God's love for them, it was Cephas. Cephas, also known as Peter, had denied Jesus three times. Peter had turned his back on the very Son of God who he had seen raise the dead and heal the sick. Yet, Jesus did not reject Peter. Instead, He lifted Peter up and restored him. This is one of the many reasons I love God's Word - it's real. The writers of scripture did not blot out the shortcomings of Peter. God's Spirit did not inspire the writers to only record the good actions of God's servants. Instead, we read through scripture the stories of imperfect men and women who God uses despite their shortcomings.

2 Corinthians 4:7 "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us." NKJV
