The Beauty of Being a Christian

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new - 2 Cor 5:17

A Christian……
Feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen,
Talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see,
Expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another,
Empties himself in order to be full,
Admits he is wrong so he can be declared right,
Goes down in order to get up,
Is strong when he is weakest,
Richest when he is poorest,
And happiest when he feels worst.

Dies so he can live,
Forsakes in order to have,
Gives away so he can keep,
Sees the invisible,
Hears the inaudible,
And knows that which passes knowledge." – A. W Tozer (The Root of the Righteous)

Christians are meant to be different, and we are in good company.
