Pete Wilson: It’s Okay To Not Be Okay

“As Christians, we often think we have to be perfect or we’re going to screw everything up, or something crazy like that. This thinking puts insane pressure on us to be perfect all the time, and it’s just not realistic. That’s why we have a saying around Cross Point – it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to have doubts. It’s okay to mess up. It’s okay to be imperfect. The beautiful thing about Christianity is that it’s based on God’s love and grace for us, rather than our good works. However, that doesn’t give us permission to give up on living the way God intends for us to live.
