You Found Me…HOW?!?

having freckles means you can speak with God

Seriously?!?
Seriously?
(in your best Meredith Grey voice)

Yeah, seriously.
It’s good for a giggle,
I suppose.

Except,
I went to church this past Sunday and heard a fantastic sermon on favoritism in the Body.
Jesus is against it,
in case you didn’t know…

In Christ’s family there can be no division into
Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female.
Among us you are all equal.
~Galatians 3:28

Within the Body, NO DIVISIONS!!!

NO racism:

no division into Jew or non-Jew.

NO social or class standing:

 no division into slave or free.

NO chauvenism or feminism:

no division into male or female.

NO favoritism because — get this, it’s really good — we are ALL His favorite.

ALL
Every last one of us.
With or withOUT freckles!
(I’m letting that one sink in… )

It’s truth.
He loves me with my freckles.
He loves you without freckles.

You get to speak to Him NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE…

In Christ’s family we are all equal.
It’s an awesome thing to know we are all sons of God according to His promise.
Each of us stands equally as we are clothed in His righteousness.

No matter how you look…

No matter how much money you make…

And no matter your gender…

IN Christ, He listens to you.
In Christ, you’ve got God’s ear.

Speak to Him.
He loves you THE MOST!

You’re His favorite.

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ
Have clothed yourselves with Christ.


There is neither Jew nor Greek,
There is neither slave nor free man,
There is neither male nor female;
For you are all one in Christ Jesus.


And if you belong to Christ,
Then you are Abraham’s descendants,
Heirs according to promise.

~Galatians 3:26-29

  1. This was so wonderful to read and to remember, to trust in those words and His promises. I love that we are all His favorite. Only God can do that. 🙂 God bless you favorite favored freckled one of His! love and prayers!
    (just had to say something about that freckle comment! haha!)

  2. Haha! Thank you, Debbie. It really hit me hard on Sunday to hear the pastor’s sermon. I remember reading Max Lucado that if God had a refrigerator your picture would be on it. I thought that was a bit over the top, until I heard the teaching on Sunday. I finally got it! For some reason it’s been easier for me to grab ahold of the wretchedness…the worm-like qualities… so you must know it’s quite an eye-opener to get a glimpse of His delight in me. And I’ll gladly accept your blessing, it’s a whole lot better than “four-eyed freckled frog!” 🙂 Thanks, again!
