Galatians 3, Day 7
The source of our identity is found in our union with Christ that happens in baptism. One life ended and a new life began.
Consider what makes you unique. How have your differing life experiences been a gift to the body of Christ? When have you experienced differences being a source of competition or division? What does this passage help us understand about how our differences can be a gift?
Today, consider what unique gift, experience, perspective, etc. you bring to the Christian community. As a follower of Jesus, how does this attribute or experience come to life for you? Not sure? Ask someone you trust! Yes, YOU are unique. There is only ONE you.
Lord Jesus, thank you for the privilege of celebrating the unity, identity, and purpose I find in the Christian community. Amen.

It is not a unique gift but I enjoy in assisting the pastor during the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Then we have a committee that takes the elements to the shut ins and those that are currently house bound because of surgery or illness. It is a joy to call on these people not only to share the meal but to just spend time with them. My wife and I also lead the Bible lesson on Wednesday evenings for children ages 4-11. It blesses us each week by how much they are learning and retaining. God Bless!
