Flawless?

There’s got to be more
Than going back and forth
From doing right to doing wrong
‘Cause we were taught that’s who we are
Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there’s worth in what you do

Then Like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Could it possibly be
That we simply can’t believe
That this unconditional
Kind of love would be enough
To take a filthy wretch like this
And wrap him up in righteousness
But that’s exactly what He did

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Take a breath smile and say
Right here right now I’m ok
Because the cross was enough

Then Like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well let me introduce you to grace grace
God’s grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

No matter what they say
Or what you think you are
The day you called His name
He made you flawless
He made you flawless

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

excellent song, don’t get me wrong! The words have ministered to me often.  I always pause when I sing Flawless though.  The tune is quite catchy, love the group Mercy Me. I know they write from personal experiences.

But am I flawless?  Positionly, in Christ, I am forgiven, I am a new creature in Christ, the past is behind me.  Does flawless mean I am without blemish, I don’t make mistakes, I can do whatever I want and God will forgive me? Am I content to just know I am flawless and not let Him and His Word point out things in my life that aren’t so holy? Do I need to be holy?

I think scripture clearly says yes.  ” Be holy, as I am also holy.”  Holy cow! How can I be holy like God? Does He mean positionly here too? It’s confusing. I don’t have all the right answers, but I wonder.  Is there something missing in today’s Christian teachings about grace and holiness and forgiveness?

I’ll keep reading the Bible, I’ll search for my answers. God loves us, forgives us when we repent, I am assured of my place in Heaven when my earthly life is over. Praise God!  And next time I’ll sing along to that song….

just wondering…😇

One thought on “Flawless?

  1. I totally hear ya, and this song and two others always give me pause when they say that we are “Holy,” “flawless,” or “clean,” because I sure don’t feel that way. I feel like a “good” person who tries really hard to be like Jesus in town, but my selfishness shows up especially at home. How can that be enough for God? I have dealt with feelings of shame and unworthiness so much of my life, many of which are finally healing in mid-life. I am just so thankful that the only answer to not feeling flawless that makes sense is that we have our amazing savior who literally died to cover our multitude of sins. How blessed are we to be loved that much? Thanks for sharing.
