So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. - Galatians 3:26-29

Dear Jesus, I love how you have released me from looking at myself as a winner or loser at anything.  I am your child, chosen to play on your team and all my other Christian friends are the same.  No one wins or loses without the other.  I look at myself and them totally different when they are wearing your jersey.  When they fall, they take me with them.  When they succeed, they lift me up to the platform to share in their glory.  We are all one in you.  And truth is, because you are our best teammate as the player/coach, we all cash in on your victory.  Thank you for putting me on your team.   Help me to accept and love my teammates and help me play my position well.  AMEN

"God drafts us to his team along with many other players.  Wisdom is learning to accept and play along with those he has chosen to be with us."
