Meet my granddaughter. She was flower girl this week at our son's wedding. She was adorable in her handmade, custom Audrey Hepburn style dress and converse high tops. The dress was lovingly made by a dear friend of my daughter. It was picture perfect with stylish tule, a satin teal sash and rhinestone buttons on the back. Too cute for words. However, the dressmaker was worried that it just wasn't exactly perfect. "It has some flaws." she said. Flaws? Really? It seems, to the dressmaker the flaws were apparently evident but to the rest of the us they were not even noticeable and totally hidden from view.

This is exactly true with God and yourself. God created you in his image but knows that you have flaws because you are human and live in a fallen sinful world. When Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior the flaws and imperfections of your life are covered so that God sees you as flawless! See, because of Jesus, although you are a sinner and far from perfect, you are perfect and flawless in God's sight. In his sight you are a friends of his Son and without sin because Jesus gave his life and paid the price for your sin. Amazing? Yes, in fact, totally wondrous and miraculous. Praise and honor to Jesus Christ. His grace and love is perfect.

But God demonstrated his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
