Grace: Born That Way

Devotional

The Bible is a map - if you know who you are it can show you where to go.  A map is no good if you don’t know where you are.   You are even more lost if you don’t know who you are.

This is who you are:
In the beginning was the Word (Jesus)
The Word was God
God created the heavens and the earth
The earth became a waste place of chaos (tohu)
God did not create the earth tohu
God created you
It was good
Male and female
In His image
It was good
He knit you together in your mother’s womb
He prepared good works in advance for you
Created to glorify God
It was good

All creation, from the biggest galaxy to the smallest quark, every star, every atom - sings of your Creator.  Every particle exists to glorify God, they reflect your purpose and potential.  You are an Image Bearer of the one true God.  In Christ, you become a tabernacle for His Holy Spirit.

You are loved by God.

Embrace your created identity today.  By God’s grace, you were born that way.
