Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

     The Christian life is a life where we have been changed. The New Testament has multiple passages which talk about what we were before knowing Christ and who we are now because of our union with Christ, because of being found in Christ.
     The Pastoral staff take time for devotions during our staff meetings. This week, we took 10 minutes to think through some of the many ways we have been changed because of Jesus. We compared lists and compiled unique occurrences. You can find the list of 90 different Was/Am phrases via this link.

     Take some time this weekend to praise God for what you were, and how you are different now because of Christ.

This Week (Feb. 18–24, 2022):
