Who Are You?

January 18, 2011

“One of the most important things to remember in the Christian life is that we must always live in light of who God is, what Jesus has done, and what has happened to us as a result. Usually we tend to define ourselves by our successes or failures, our reputation, our sin, our intelligence, beauty, and abilities (or lack of them). Moreover, we often define other people by their weaknesses, failures, and sins. Hence we are quick to gossip and condemn others. The good news calls us to view ourselves and other Christians very differently. Jesus now defines who we are. Through Jesus’ work on the cross we have been declared perfect, blameless, and without fault. We have been forgiven and made right with God. We have become the dearly loved children of the living God, and nothing can separate us from his love.”

— Neil H. Williams, Living in Light of the Gospel Story

      Don’t know Chris, but don’t think so. Think the middle initial was different. Plus, we hear occasionally from Brenda and I would think a return to Christianity by Neil would have been passed along to us.
