Christians Are . . .
Christians are . . .
hymns of praise to God,
though their lives may seem ordinary.
the crown of creation,
though they may be despised, humble, and weak.
citizens of the kingdom of God,
though they may not have a house of their own.
mirrors of God’s beauty,
though other people may find them ugly.
rich in love,
though they may be poor.
a sacrifice for other people,
though they may not be anyone’s hero.
the strongest people on earth,
though their strength is in prayer.
the song of love God sang to creation,
the poem the Father crafted for the Son through the Holy Spirit.
