Who I Am In Christ

It is when I forget who I am in Christ that I become:
  • frustrated
  • disappointed
  • sad
  • angry
  • discouraged

How can I have any of those feelings when I think about Jesus has done for me through his life, sacrificial death and resurrection? How can I possibly feel badly as I recall how He has re-made and re-claimed me, a new creation in Christ? No matter what is going on in my life apart from who I am, they mean little. Knowing who I am paradoxically helps me to take my eyes off myself, my shortcomings and failings, my disappointments and frustrations and allows me to care more fully for others. Thank God for the Good News of Jesus Christ!

Many thanks to Mrs. Daniel Puckett- I found this on her Pinterest board.
