It is often the case in baseball that a power hitter leads the league in both strike outs and home runs. It is always exciting when such a batter comes to the plate in a clutch situation. Here’s my question. “At such times would you rather have the batter seeing himself as a strike out king or as a home run hitter?” Self-image matters. So, then, what about your self-image? The Bible affirms believers as saints, yet reminds them of their sinfulness. As a believer, do you generally see yourself as a saint or a sinner? And how does that self-image influence you when you step up to the plate? Be assured that God sees you pure and clean, washed in the blood of the Lamb. To God, you are a saint, and God is glorified when you live up to that image.
