Chapter 7

Where Do I Fit In?

At some point, we are compelled to ask, “What does all this mean to me?”

To answer that question requires two considerations. If you do not know Christ personally, having never asked him for forgiveness of your sin, it means that there is an answer. There is hope, because there is a God who gave His Son to show you who He is and how much He loves you. That God offers you the gift of His forgiveness and love—a gift which can be accepted only by faith.

For the child of God, however, the challenge is different. Just as Jesus came to put God on display, we are called to do so as well. We can’t do this in our own energy, but we can by his grace and strength. Paul said:

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God (2 CORINTHIANS 5:20).
