By the will of God

“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?

Dear God,
Thank you for reminding me who am, and whose I am.
In Jesus’ name,
