Who/What we are in Christ

Even though we are only into two months of this New Year, I am sure that it has been trying for number of people including me. So I thought we all needed to be encouraged. I was on my way to work and I heard myself saying out loud that if you were the only person on earth, I would have still come and died for you.

God would have told his son that you have to go for her, and just think Jesus agreed. I do not know anyone who would die for me. What about you? The word that came to me was appreciation, strange but I truly appreciate what the Father and Son did for me.

I want to encourage you with a reminder of who/what we are in Christ and I have made these scriptures personal.

• We are not looking at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen (2 Corinthians 4:18)

These scriptures only apply to those who are in the family! You can be part of the family. Remember: Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with mouth confession is made unto salvation

Have a bless day!

  2. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
    and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
