Am I perfect? Very far from it! Are you perfect – I’ll leave that for you to decide. What does this mean? This means that all sincere Christians know the truth that is that none of us are perfect and ALL are struggling to one degree or another to live good, moral and pure lives.
What this means
Whilst there are clear biblical guidelines and very good and obvious reasons prescribed for people who are going to lead a flock – married to one wife, children and able to manage his own family well… this means that anyone is ordained to preach about the good news – in fact we are virtually commanded to do it!
Why I – a sinner can preach freely about Jesus
Because it is not about me – a sinner – it is about Jesus Christ – our perfect risen saviour!
