Have you ever really asked “Who am I?” In Christ Jesus you are loved, forgiven, chosen, a new creation, not condemned, more than a conqueror, God’s workmanship, a work in progress, provided for, and victorious. You are who God says you are and you are unique, a friend of God who created you for a purpose and in Christ you have an identity.
The Gifts of Christmas
There is no other time of year that we think about gifts more than during the Christmas season. Giving and receiving gifts can certainly bring joy, but gifts can also be the source of stress. What should you buy? Will they like it? In the rush of it all, let’s remember that Christmas is not about the gifts we give and get, but about the gifts that Jesus gave to us by coming into the world. This year, let’s pause, reflect and be thankful for those blessed gifts from above!
