In my relationship with Ifte, he confronts me when I’m doing wrong or being double minded. Even though this process has been really hard and painful, it’s helped me to see myself so that I can repent, change, and live my life in a way that’s more in line with how God wants me to live. If it weren’t for this relationship, I’m not sure I’d really understand what it means to accept your own sinfulness. To accept the mistakes that you’ve made, but at the same time not to despair from that… and instead trust in God’s faithfulness to help me change. I’ve also experienced how Christ loves me through the way that Ifte loves me in our relationship. Even though Ifte sees the worst parts of me and he gets hurt directly by me- he’s still here and he still loves me. Not that he’s just going to accept everything that I do wrong, but he’s going to help me to grow and change. I think that’s what Christ’s love is like. I don’t think I would have gotten a full picture of that if he hadn’t come into my life.
