Worship at Christ, Sunday at 9 am.

Dear Friends in Christ,
I read a story about Dr. Albert Einstein, who was taking a train to an out of town engagement. The conductor stopped by to punch his ticket, but the great scientist preoccupied with his work, explained that he couldn’t find his ticket. Not in the coat pockets, not in the briefcase.
The conductor said, “We all know who you are, Dr. Einstein. I’m sure you bought a ticket. Don’t worry.”
As the conductor moved along, he looked back to see Einstein on his hands and knees searching under the seats for his ticket.
“Dr. Einstein, please, don’t worry about it. I know who you are.”
Einstein looked up and said, “I too know who I am. What I don’t know is where I’m going.”
Identity and image is important, no, make that essential for acceptance in American culture. Think not, speak to the advertising agencies who market products based on appearance, image and identity.
Here’s the good news, God loves you, Jesus died for you, and God has a wonderful plan for your life. We find our greatest identity in Christ. With that identity we feel an assurance of his destiny.
This month I want to share with you in worship about the special creation God has made when he designed YOU!
The Bible tells us that we are designed with dignity, unlike other life forms, God created us “imago dei,” reflecting His very own image. We are God’s hand crafted design, Created with His plan and destiny in mind.
Many things in life have shaped who we are–we received our name from our parents, our identity from influences in home and family, career choices, personality traits, good and bad experiences in life and what we produce.
But the greatest design for our identity comes from God! He designed us to be His. You dear friends are designed with dignity for a special destiny.
See you in church this Sunday.
