The Christian.


Being a Christian means we have recognized how broken we really are...and that we need a Savior.

I think that we forget that.

When we don't get our way and stomp our foot, we lash out with ugly words.  And probably the harshest words I hear over and over.... "You call yourself a Christian?"

Yes.  Yes I do.

I'm not surprised and it comes with the territory when you work with many people all over the world and from all walks of life.  I understand this.  Words dig deep.  Wound.   --Especially when they come from fellow Christians.

I am a Christian because I am a sinner.  I need a Savior.  I need a loving God to smooth out all the rough edges and continue to mold me more and more into Christ.   I NEED Him and I couldn't do any of this without Him.  

I fall short and make a messy mess of things. 

I'm not perfect....but I AM a Christian.

"God, my strength, I am looking to you, because God is my defender.  My God loves me, and he goes in front of me."  Psalm 59: 9-10

As we walk through Holy Week...may we all {and I speak to myself as well} treat each other with LOVE and GRACE.  May we not be "holy Pharisees" quick to judge, but have a heart of Christ.  Let's build each other up instead of tearing each other down.  Especially in our weaknesses.

...and would you pray with me today? Pray over this ministry/business called Baby be Blessed? May I KEEP MY EYES ON JESUS and represent Him well. --There are not enough thanks...XOXO!

Praying for the Baby Be Blessed business and the ministry it provides. I just discovered Baby Be Blessed last week and have to say I am always blessed by the scripture selections on the FB page! Thank you for being faithful. May His grace abound and may He become greater as we become less! :) Lindsey

Loved this blog topic... I was told this very thing by an atheist not that long ago because I didn't agree with something that another friend had said. I couldn't explain why it got under my skin so bad, especially considering he doesn't believe in anything... yet was calling my beliefs into question.
