To The Faithful In Christ... You.

Dale, an apostle of Christ Jesus, by the will of God, to God's holy people, in blog world, facebook world, face to face world, talking on the phone world... the faithful in Christ Jesus.

Before you think I have gone mad, read on.
I am not a Paul or have his depth of wisdom, but I am a follower of Christ and desire to live a life devoted to Him.

Ephesians 1:1-2 opens this way, with Paul writing to his friends in the church. 
He recognizes who he is in Christ .
He calls out to his friends, not as his friends, but as holy people, called by Christ. Christ's friends.

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To God’s holy people in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

Everything about this introduction points to HIM... Christ.
Paul was a powerful example to us.
Even in his introduction we see his devotion to Christ.

3 John 4
" I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."

God asks us to be faithful, to walk in truth.
If we recognize who we are, in Christ, who our brothers and sisters are in Christ, we may find the path easier to walk.
As followers of Jesus... we lift one another up, bear each others burdens, show the love to all we meet. 
Our responsibilities are the same, if we claim the name if Christ.

Our gifts may be different.
 We GET to use them for His glory... today.
Be faithful and walk in truth today... at God's request.
