Who Are You?

These words were written by Paul, a man who realized God values authenticity more than the white-washed tomb of legalism.

 

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

 

The Bible is always applicable to our lives. We can all recognize that it’s hard to be glad about our weaknesses.  We can all recognize that we care more about appearances than we let on.

 

The fact of the matter is that the world is faking it, and in many cases, so are we. Our culture (and it’s nothing new) finds it important to appear strong, to appear successful, to appear like they have it all together.  Essentially, appearance is everything.  But this concept seems to be the opposite in God’s kingdom.  Weakness is strength. I’m sure you think this concept won’t make sense to our culture. Probably because it’s hard, even for Christians, to wrap our minds around this concept.  But what matters is not what our culture says.  What matters is what is true.

 

Here’s the truth:

We’re all sinners. The sooner we recognize that God doesn’t see things the way we do, the better off we’ll be--the more REAL we’ll be.  So, who are you?

If you’ve surrendered your life to Jesus, then you are His child.

 

There is nothing more real than that.

Live in this amazing fact every day that you were a sinner SAVED by grace and you ARE a child of God!

 

Be Blessed,

Pastor Brandon
