This is Me, Who Are You?

Sanctification is growing in knowing who we are

By knowing who God is

By receiving His love for us

 

After two years of playing tennis, I have realized who I am on the court and what my role is.

The Lord showed me that who I am on the court, is who I am on the mission field.

I am a player who stays focused on each point and is not distracted by the score.

I am a teacher who loves one person at a time and is not distracted by the number of people who believe.
