I am a Christian...

Let all that you do be done in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:14
They will know we are Christians by our love. Yes, by our love, by our love, yes they will know we are Christians by our love. This verse is from a powerful song that reminds us that it is love that binds us together. As a sinner, I need God’s abundant grace daily. God blessed me with the following message recently from social media:
When I say that I am a Christian, I am not shouting that I am clean living. I am whispering I was lost and now I am found and forgiven. When I say I am a Christian, I do not speak of this with pride. I am confessing that I stumble and need Jesus Christ to be my guide. When I say I am a Christian, I am not trying to be strong. I am professing that I am weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say I am a Christian, I am not bragging of success. I am admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess. When I say I am a Christian I am not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it. When I say I am a Christian, I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name. When I say I am a Christian, I am not holier than thou. I am just a simple sinner who received God’s grace, somehow!
Who loves Jesus!
