Over the next twenty six days, I’m going to search for at least one word (or phrase) that describes who I am now that I am found in Christ, I am also going to find one scripture passage from the bible pertaining to that word and post it (with additional references in brackets wherever possible). I want to cover the whole alphabet. Would you like to join me? Let’s call the project “26 Letters of Biblical Truth”. At the end of these twenty six days, I’ll post all of the findings in one place.
I'd like to add that some of these findings are from the "Points of Interest" section at the back of my bible; that's another great place to look if you need encouragement, particularly so in this area.
It’s crucial to remember that all we are in Christ is not of our own doing but of the Lord’s, a gift to us. May these reminders serve us by building up our faith and trust in God, while being a pleasing aroma to the Lord as we give thanks for all he has done. Amen.
