Hitting the Target

One of my favorite pastimes is to go target shooting.  I have noticed, and most shooters will tell you that the closer you are to the target the easier it is to hit the target.  I may not always hit the bullseye but I miss a lot less.

When you juxtapose Christianity and target shooting you will see the similarities.  In Christianity, just like in target shooting, the closer you are to the target the easier it is to hit the target.  You see sin is nothing more than missing the mark (target)

We all struggle with missing the target (sin) in our walk with Christ so the way to correct that is to get closer to the target.  Getting closer to Jesus (target) doesn’t necessarily mean that you will never sin, but it does mean that you can miss the mark a lot less.

If there are areas in your life that you struggle with,  areas in which you are missing the mark, then get closer to Jesus.
