Failure in the Christian Walk

Ever feel like you fail time and again to live up to the Christian ideal you have for yourself? I know how that feels. I take encouragement from the Biblical accounts of failure in the lives of everyone from Adam and Eve to the apostles. It they had been perfect men and woman of God, I would think myself hopeless. Last night, I was reading John 21:15-25 in which Jesus restored Peter,  who had denied Him, yet went on to become a strong leader of the early church. Peter failed. We fail. Yet, failure does not have to be permanent unless we let it. Like Peter, we can accept forgiveness and move onward.
