Okay, you failed. You totally screwed up. Guess what? You’re the only one who’s surprised. I’m not surprised. Jesus certainly isn’t surprised. In fact, He called it. He saw it coming. He’s not disappointed. He’s not frustrated. He’s not going to smite you to tiny bits, so whatever you do, don’t go cowering in guilt and shame and run away from Him. Pick yourself up off the mat and go straight to Jesus. Go find Him and talk with Him. Find out how much He loves you. Find out how it happened and get ready to face the next wave of temptation armed with some wisdom and the unshakable certainty that you can never, ever out-sin His outrageous, relentless love and grace.
