Christians ARE NOT perfect! *Updated*

Yes, we are not perfect! We have feelings, we get angry, sometimes we may slip and curse, say mean and hurtful things, act like a maniac, commit sins, and then look like the most non Christian person in the room! It’s a painful thing when we realize how idiotic we look and what a terrible example we just set for those around us! It’s even worse when we get this comment shooting us: “Aren’t you supposed to be a Christian?” knowing we didn’t show how Christians are SUPPOSED to act!

Another thing that I would like to touch on is that when we are trying to do the right thing, its as if the enemy doesn’t want us to do right and obey. So what does he do??? he tempts us, wishing us to lust and fall. It’s a terrible thing when it happens, but with admitting and confessing our sin to God, God forgives us through the blood of his son Jesus Christ and if we are open to Him, we can be renewed with a sharper view and stronger to resist temptation, come out VICTORIOUS and be REDEEMED of the Lord!

I am sharing this video because it is a testimony of one of my favorite Christian rappers, Da Truth, who overcame temptation and SIN and repented with a new LIFE and a new word for those of us who have dealt with or are dealing with the same thing! A little of it has to do with what I dealt with back in 2010 of my life! I was in the same place he was in the video!

I hope you are encouraged! LISTEN TO THE LYRICS, it tells it all!

***UPDATED WITH THE LYRICS TO THE SONG…READ THEM BELOW***
When I was dead, revived my soul
Takes the broken makes them whole
Takes the bound makes them free
Takes the weak and makes them strong
All of my sins been erased
He has lifted my disgrace
I’m overjoyed, overjoyed
That Jesus would make me whole

I ain’t tryin to be hot or tryin to be relevant
I ain’t a candle I ain’t trying to wax eloquent
I’m runnin from my life, now I’m tryin to fight hard
these ain’t just lyrics but a contrite heart
Yeah, feeling it like the heat in the summer
We know better but the flesh be keeping us running
Back the leeks and onions as i recently discovered
If it’s in the dark it’s impossible to keep secrets covered
Who would have known that my indiscretions would reach my cousins
I apologize to Mimi my niece and others
Should have been able to trust but I breached the covenant
I knew you all before you was able to reach the cupboard
Now when I preached in public it’s all out the window
Cause sin contradicted a lot of what my pen wrote
Especially when I wrote an open book
Apparently there was something in me I overlooked

Hook:
When I was dead, revived my soul
Takes the broken makes them whole
Takes the bound makes them free
Takes the weak and makes them strong
All of my sins been erased
He has lifted my disgrace
I’m overjoyed, overjoyed
That Jesus would make me whole

Check my records I got some prize like Harlem nights
I need Jesus, David’s son like a Harley bike
Wasn’t hardly right what I did was wrong
And it ticks me off and sets me off
And I hate the consequences cause death results
But I know I reap what I sow like Betsy Ross

He ain’t tempt me but He let me fall
Now I carry all that pain, sin left me scarred
He let me fall but He ain’t let me go
And now I wouldn’t stray, sin left me broke
yeah the life in me ain’t no crystal stair
but I keep climbing cause the diamond is crystal clear
At times I’m quiet, I get a chair
sit and stare think about the ways the sin affected my fiscal year
yeah the tide is turning now, shifting gears
Though I’m weak He’s given strength in midst of tears

[Hook:]

Felt dead and lonely
Only God knows
That Jesus came to breathe life on my dry bones
I know a lot, knowing a lot’s not wrong
But now it’s all about application like the iPhone
I got hang-ups like dial tones
Yeah but Jesus hung up and died so
No condemnation, that’s my consolation
Am I still guilty? Not a conversation
Now I just wanna proclaim it in the congregation
God is good and Doctor Jesus got a lot of patients
I’m on the operating table, heart palpitating, look at what the potter’s shaping
God I thank the body, cause y’all came behind me
When my foot slipped and I sank in the valley
Something supernatural happened when the saints rallied
My true friends held me up like a bank robbery
And that’s foolproof, I can’t even front like a gold tooth
I hate what I had to go through, but I love the fact that I got to know you
So what you are witnessing now is the whole truth

[Hook:]
