19 Benefits of Being a Son-Follower

  1. What a breathtaking post! I don’t have anything to add to your list, Pearl. Just something to Ephesians 2:10. In the Greek, workmanship is Poema. As a writer, it thrills me to think God is penning our lives lyrically, narratively and dramatically.

    Here’s one of my own: (2012ish, I think…)

    God, in His love
    Weaves the days and months and years
    Precious moments form the strands
    And a pattern known as life appears.

    Thank you for the beautiful encouragement! 🙂

    1. Glenda! I LOVE what you shared!!! Thank you so much for the insight into Greek – what an intimate, precious thought that God’s hand holds the pen to our lives’ scripts. Poema even looks beautiful on paper! Your poem paints a visual of God as the Master Artist. What a great combo! We have the Author of life and the Master Artist in charge of our lives! Really appreciate you sharing your poem and thoughts, Glenda!

  2. Pearl, I have a 5×7 card on my desk at home that’s covered front and back with Scriptures revealing our identity in Christ. I read those almost daily.

    Here’s a couple more to add to your list:

    I am God’s coworker!
    “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.” (1 Cor. 3:9)

    I am firmly rooted and built up in Christ!
    “rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:7)

    I am a personal witness of Christ!
    “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

    Thanks for sharing about our true identities! We need to stand firm and believe these.
