“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God in Corinth, together with all the saints throughout Achaia: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 1:1-2).
As I ponder these words this morning I am struck by how Paul includes the will of God in his self-understanding. Paul understands that he is who he is “by the will of God.”
I wonder what impact that same understanding would have on me. Would it make a difference in my life if I had a greater self-awareness that I am who I am by the will of God?
Thank you for reminding me who am, and whose I am.
In Jesus’ name,
