Hi sis! I want to encourage you today with over 25 imperfect Christian quotes and sayings.
Have you ever felt like an imperfect Christian? Like nothing you have done or anything you will ever do can make you a person capable of being used by God?
At various points in my life, I’ve felt like I was too flawed, too imperfect, too broken for God to possibly pick up the pieces and find enough good for Him to use. But God constantly reminds me through encouraging quotes like the ones I’ll share with you in today’s blog post, that God does use imperfect and flawed people, every single day, to touch other imperfect and flawed people.
I hope these 25 imperfect Christian quotes and sayings encourage you this year and motivate you to go out there and use your flaws and imperfections to connect with other people who feel discouraged because they too have flaws. They too can be used by our Saviour.
25+ Imperfect Christian Quotes And Sayings To Encourage You
Being a Christian shouldn’t mean that we strive towards self-improvement or some kind of personal level of perfection. It means striving to be like Christ. Jesus uses the flawed. He uses the imperfect, the failures and the outcasts. I pray that these imperfect Christian quotes and sayings encourage you that no matter how you feel, Jesus is interested in you.
“Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was depressed, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead.”
“If I were Satan… I would keep them so distraught and distracted that they would never find the calming strength and serenity… catching them in the crunch of trying to be superhuman instead of realistically striving to reach their individual purpose and unique God-given potential. We must have the courage to be imperfect.”
“No person is 100% faithful. It is only when we see the depth of our own unfaithfulness that we can truly begin to understand the faithfulness of Jesus. He is faithful even when we are not. Thankfully, we have a perfect God who loves us imperfect people.”
“God has already taken into account the wrong turns, the mistakes in your life. Quit beating yourself up and accept His mercy.”
“Everything which relates to God is infinite. We must therefore, while we keep our hearts humble, keep our aims high. Our highest services are indeed but finite, imperfect. But as God is unlimited in goodness, He should have our unlimited love.”
“I want to be a woman who overcomes obstacles in faith rather than tiptoeing around them in fear, who worships in awe of Your goodness instead of worrying about the what if’s. I want to be a lioness rising up to protect your children and boldly speaking truth wherever you call me.”
“Don’t fall into the lie that you’re alone. Don’t fall into the lie that it’s time to settle or give up. Fall into God’s arms, come alive in His truth, and let it tear down every lie that was never built up around you.”

“I’m not a perfect girl my hair doesn’t always stay in place and I spill things a lot. I’m pretty clumsy and sometimes I have a broken heart. My friends and I sometimes fight. Maybe some days nothing goes right, but when I think about it and take a step back, I remember how amazing life truly is and through all y imperfections… God still loves me”
“Remember God is not surprised by your inabilities, your imperfections, or your faults. He has always known everything about you that you are just now finding out, and he chose you on purpose for himself.”
“It’s not always in successes, but sometimes in your struggle, that God will show you who you really are.”
“It is in your broken places you are most often used by God.”
