Who am I?

I am not the person I was and am not yet the person I will be. In view of God’s great mercy, in the presence of God’s great grace, in the community of His great love, I have been transformed. I am made new by the life and death and glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ. I continue to change because God’s love never has, and never does, and never will.

As John – the fisherman, the “son of thunder,” the chronicler of Lazarus’ story, the beloved disciple – writes, “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins…We love because he first loved us.” {1 John 4:10 & 19}
