It’s good to be me

Almighty God,
who wonderfully created us in your own image
and yet more wonderfully restored us
through your Son Jesus Christ:
grant that, as he came to share in our humanity,
so we may share the life of his divinity;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

 

This is the collect for the First Sunday of Christmas (last week).  What a lovely collect to start off the New Year. In fact it’s a GLORIOUSTHING.  What a shame most of us don’t really believe God when he says that we are made in his image.  Too many of us don’t think we are good enough or spend our time wanting to be someone else (or cleverer, or more beautiful or more skinny). God made me to be me and is restoring me to that glorious best person He intends me to be.  YES!

New Years resolution;

  • to say everyday ‘It’s good to be me’
  • to share in His life
  • and to recognise the image of God in others.
