My Pronoun Is …

Dear Readers: I try hard to keep my posts at 1000 words or less (About 4 minutes of reading per week), but last week I couldn’t get to my word count. Predictably, my post went way over.

As my way of apology, I’m going to write even more! – Kidding… sort of. Just some extra thoughts that are way shorter than my usual. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought with a price. – I Corinthians 6:19-20a

I was a sinner (Romans 3:23), condemned to eternal death for my sin (Romans 6:23a), but God chose to give me life instead (Romans 6:23b). He sent His Son Jesus to pay the price for my sins by dying in my place (I Peter 2:24) so I could be forgiven and healed. I was the lost sheep, but my Shepherd came after me, found me, and brought me home, rejoicing. (Luke 15:4-6) He has gone ahead to prepare me a home in heaven. (John 14:2) And when the time is right, He’s coming to get me and take me there.

Jesus bought me with a price – a very heavy price, His very life. And I belong to Him forever.

(MY PRONOUN IS “HIS.”)

  1. Yes, that was a great reminder Ann that He paid the ultimate price to give us life. A life that should be used to further His kingdom.
    Happy Thanksgiving to your family. I am thankful for you and the wisdom that you share. πŸ’–

  2. This is creative writing at its best!
    You grabbed me with the title and I’m thinking “Amen” to all the redemptive acts of Christ then captured me with the punchline. Annie, I love your idea of turning an awkward moment into an opportunity. I pray the Holy Spirit brings this to mind if the situation arises.
