I am.....

......chosen, holy, and blameless before God.

Our pastor continued his messages on GRACE this past SONday morning.  The meat of his message was about Lot and how we might have the wrong impression of the man....that things we perceive about Lot isn't how God saw him.  (2 Peter 2:6-9).  God considered Lot a righteous man.  The point being made was how we may see ourselves as unworthy, but that's not how God sees us.  
Pastor had handouts that gives 31 "I am" promises about what we are in Christ.

Since today is the 14th day of January,
I want to share #14 with y'all today.....

Ephesians 1:4
Even before he made the world, 
God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

Because of some things that happened to me growing up.....
feelings that became instilled in me, even to this day.....
I REALLY needed this message.
As we stood and bowed our heads.....
I wept.

Thank you, Lord, for loving me.

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
