Find your identity in Christ.

Not in your relationship status,

not in your career path,

not in your academics,

not in your social life.

All of these things are temporary,

and can change at any moment.

But Jesus is everlasting and constant.

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Hebrews 13:3
After Thought
For years I thought my assignment or the Church’s assignment was to articulate the Gospel and nothing more. Now I believe that if we don’t support the verbal expression of the Gospel with physical demonstration of compassion, we are not imitating Jesus.

I am so thankful for a God who pursues His lost sheep, who gives us opportunity after opportunity to come back to Him. I am thankful for a God who came to us, and took our debt. I’m thankful for a God who now tells us to follow Him, and who is patient in our stumblings. I’m thankful for a relentless grace that only Christ gives, because I’m a relentless vagabond, always seeking to jump ship. He is faithful when I am not, He is constant when I am not, He is everything when I am nothing; yet He says that I am His, which means more than anything in this life.
