So much of how we see and engage the world around us is tied to how we see ourselves. How we see ourselves is tied profoundly to how we believe God sees us. What we believe about how God sees us comes down to choices we make about who or what is true in life. Not a choice in some kind of simplistic "just do it" kind of way, but an intentional orientation of life toward what we believe to be true about God and how he sees us. We can choose to orient our lives by thinking we are hopeless wretches that God is waiting to condemn because of our sinful choices, or by the God who says we are cherished children because of Jesus. As you read the following texts, note what they say about who we are because of Jesus and the challenge to choose who will be the central focus of our living.
