Failure

Recently I spoke with a man concerning his identity.  As a child he was made to feel like a failure, and he struggles mightily today to not fail.  His constant effort at work, home, church and with friends, to not fail, requires much energy and eventually becomes an overwhelming weight that leads to depression and perceived failure.  In other words, this man's struggle to not be a failure is causing him to fail.

But in Christ we are already the victor.  We can not and will not fail.  A relationship in Christ promises success eternally.  As Christians, we are no longer a product of our past but of new life.  2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come".  Celebrate your victory today.  You are not a product of your past, but of the One that created your future.
