As Christians, we are the possessors of the most incredible promises of all time — The forgiveness of our sins, our adoption as children of God and members of the Bride of Christ. These things and more are all true of those who are in Christ! But….not yet do we have the full fruit of these promises. For now, Jesus sends us into a world that will hate us, and hurt us. We have heard already that we are not victims — so how do we live faithfully in light of the Truth that is to come?
