Hi, my name is Ron Browning. Thanks for joining me, as we seek to grow in and live from our True Identity in Christ. So where do we start?
John's Gospel opens with an invitation to receive Jesus' Life. Read his invite with me:
The Life-Light was the real thing:
Every person entering Life he brings into Light.
He was in the world, the world was there through him,
And yet the world didn't even notice.
He came to his own people, but they didn't want him.
But whoever did want him,
Who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said,
He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves.
(John 1:9-12, the Message Bible)
John's bidding raises a question. Who is my true self, my child-of-God self? Who did God design and intend me to be? Who am I?
David Howell's: How To Be A Child of God video and booklet begins to answer this question. I encourage you to watch the video and explore the booklet, in order to discover God's intent for you. Howell lists corresponding Scripture, in the footer of each page, in the booklet. You could even spend a month walking though these verses from the Bible.
Take some time to explore God's story, His Life and intent for you. Let us know your thoughts or any decisions you have made here.
