"You are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints."
- Ephesians 2:18-22
 
In our world today there are many competing values. Each Christian must decide between them. The cross of Christ helps us to sort out those values and empowers us to choose the right ones. During this week of our Lenten journey we will focus on the Cross.
 
Increasingly, during the past decade, we have all seen the feverish, neurotic concern of men and women with the immediate, momentary, and the little.  Almost every emotional problem which has crossed our paths could have been solved with a truthful answer to the question: "What will it matter ten years from now?"

Christian friends, can somebody tell us who we are? Yes, God can, and He does so in the Bible. He identifies us in His inspired Word as either unforgiven aliens, self-excluded from His household by our own sin and unbelief, or as children of God, belonging to His family by faith in Jesus Christ.
