Paul, was transitioned from persecutor to persecuted when God transformed his identity from self-righteous Jew, to Servant of Christ.
Lessons I’ve learned about God
Our Father knows we are broken and fallible. And yet, like David, we are anointed for His purposes and pursued with passion.
Secure in our identity of Child of God, we are both blessed and afflicted.
We don’t always see God working. But if He is who He says He is, we don’t have to be terrified. We know we are loved, selected and protected.
The Spirit’s stirring confirms we are called. Yet our “Child of God” status is affirmed when we are disciplined by our Father.
Being adopted by God involves being shaped and transformed, at times, through testing.
Christ came, died, rose, and every day He lives for us. He will come again. What does that mean for you?
Don’t let the cliche rob the miraculous and wondrous: Christ died. But then He rose.
Christ came fully human and fully God. But then the unthinkable happened; He died. Yet, this was part of God’s plan.
The transformative love of God results in freedom to love, serve and suffer.
