number 1The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position (James 1:9).

Who do you think you are?

Do you think you’re kind of a nuthinburger, with a dead-end job, an empty bank account, a lonely heart, and little to offer the world?

Interesting.  I know that feeling.  May I even suggest that, in the eyes of the world, it may be fairly accurate?

In the eyes of the world.

But, since when do we care about the eyes of the world, Beloved?

Let me remind you of something.  If you belong to Christ, then you are a child of the Lord of Everything.  You are royalty of the highest order.

Your job? King’s Ambassador.

Your wealth?  The riches of Heaven.

Your heart? Loved to distraction by the Author of Love, the one who thought up the very idea of you, the one who knows everything there is to know about you, the one who died so that you can be together forever.

Your gift to the world?  The message of that love.

Who do you think you are?

Who do you know you are?

Stand tall, Beloved.
