Salvation or a Job Interview?

I watched an amazing movie yesterday called “An Interview With God”. I won’t reveal any details but if you haven’t seen it I strongly suggest you watch it. A quote in the movie struck a cord in me. You see, I’ve been struggling recently with feeling like I just don’t measure up to God’s standards. I see other my other Christians friends and they look like they have it all figured out. I started focusing on my failures and was left with the feeling that I don’t measure up to God’s standards. After a few days of this I started to question my own salvation. After praying about it for a few weeks now I would have never imagined that God would give me my answer through a movie, and yet, that’s exactly what He did.

I’ve come to realize that I was living my life like I was in a job interview for God instead of accepting a salvation that was already mine. How silly I was for doubting myself. After all while we may never measure up to God’s standards it’s only through the eyes of Jesus that our beauty shines through. And it’s easy to come to church and put our best foot forward but behind closed doors, at the end of the day, when the sun goes down on the mirage we sell to an imperfect world everyone is battling their own demons.
