who am i..in the great world of peeps
It is exciting to see God walking in the lives of so many people in our church family. We were blessed with the stories and testimonies that were shared at church, stories of seeking the will of God for change, to make a difference, to restore, reveal, build and unite. It was exciting because we can see how each of us is so interconnected. I know that if we could nail down the absolute scope of what God is calling us (Jussi and I) to do, we would wave flags of I can't. But that is the beauty of it, God can! It is through Him that we are united with a group of believers, and together we can.
Who I Am in Christ!
I am accepted (chosen)..John 15 v 16
You didn't choose me, remember; I chose you...
I am secure...2 Tim. 1 v 6 -7
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
I am significant..Matthew 5 14
4"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
I have a bookmark, long since tattered and torn, back and forth to the mission field and each time I take it down I am drawn to different verses.
I don't remember exactly how it came to me, but if you ever question who you are in Christ, check it out. I do often. Freedom in Christ, Your identity and Satan's lies! www.ficm.org
A final word from His word...2nd Timothy 3 16
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man (people, men women, teens, and children) of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Be thankful we don't need to write the book, that has been done for us, in many different translations and languages. How cool is that..the biggest selling book of all time!
