    Smack...I could have had a V-8!

    After walking the Christian road for some 48 years reading "God's Astounding Opinion of You: Understanding Your Identity Will Change Your Life" was like the current V-8 commercials. Smack: you've had life all this time! As I ponder what Ralph wrote and my walk with God I realize more each day how works oriented I am and how easy it is to become discouraged that I can NEVER measure up when all the time God gave me AND I HAVE Christ's Life which IS the measure I need. I have it all already! Accepted in God, clothed in His righteousness, Beloved of the Father.who me? I read it, think it but experiencing that kind of position on a day to day bases has often (more then I want to admit) eluded me. Now I have Ralph's words playing in my head to remind me of who I am and I am truly BETTER OFF THEN I THINK!
