A Glimpse of Grace
Exactly Like You

Psalm 8: 3-5
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 5 Yet, you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory...
I do believe in this day and age, where we are so concerned about the "I" in everything we say or do, I thought it might be good to talk about the "I", but to put it in proper perspective.
Now I am not talking about the "I" as in the terms of entitlement or selfishness or privileges or even rights. I am talking about who we are, individually, in the sight of the only thing that matters: in the sight of God.
We are, after all, God's children, one of His most beautiful creations, heirs of His grace, free from the law of sin and death and therefore destined for salvation. We are saints, our bodies the temple of the Lord, set free in Christ, and blessed beyond all compare.
My prayer today is that in spite of whatever the world may throw at you, that you would remember who you are in Christ. That is of utmost importance!
And knowing that, take a little piece of what you now know about yourself and share it with those who do not know who they are. They, like you, long to hear those words of grace and salvation, no matter what other faith or believe system they believe in apart from Christ.
He made no one exactly like you, but called you to be a friend of Jesus. And because of that, you are to be exactly like Christ, who lives and breathes His Spirit into you.
So use the "I" only in terms of who you are in Christ....and
Be Well, Do Good Work...and
Be Blessed Like Crazy!
