The ticket isn’t the show

For the law never made anything perfect. But now we have confidence in a better hope, through which we draw near to God. Heb. 7:19

Right now, at this very moment, God sees each of us as perfect. Not because we conform to a set of standards devised to measure perfection. Jesus is perfect. His blood is perfect. Perfection is the price of admission. The hope is the nearness of God not the designation of “perfect.” Focusing on perfection is like going to an amazing concert and spending the whole time looking at your ticket.

Lord, help me enjoy being at and in the show.
