And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
Likewise, He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.Luke 22:19-20–NKJV
Christians are not perfect
Christians aren’t perfect. We have faults and shortcomings, and we make mistakes. But the more we strive to grow in Christ the more we’ll see that we have a long way to go before we achieve perfection.
Therefore, we should never tricked ourselves into thinking that we are perfect. When we make mistakes, we must own them, learn from them and forget them. Still, this is not easy. But if we kept our eyes on the prize, and maintain our focus, we will achieve our desired objective.
Christians must be humble
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

Worship Wednesday: Psalm 34:1-9 (King James Version KJV)
I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamped round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
