Jim Ginn, was one of my great confidants and guide, who made sure that my walk with Christ was closer everyday. He always said these words to me before I stepped out of the house, he said : ‘Girl, Remember Who You are – You are God’s child, You are very precious in His sight and His precious blood was shed for you, never let HIM down’. He even bought me a cap with these words stitched on it :”Remember Who You are”.
These words got embedded in my heart so strongly that it always pulls me out of temptations that come by my way all the time. There are times when I almost give in, but I can hear Jim’s rusty voice saying “Remember Who You Are”. At that moment the love of Christ flashes in my mind and makes me remember who I am, I just run back to Christ, who is my fortress and shelter.
Jim Ginn is no more – but his profound words will always be with me. Jim’s love and dedication for Christ drew me even closer to Christ. I want to do the same, I want to make difference in everyone’s life who comes in touch with me, by passing on the light that Christ has given me. I want to always remember who I am in Christ and make sure others do so too. So, when Satan looks you in the face and woos you – don’t give in… Just “Remember Who You are” – You are God’s child, You are very precious in His sight and His precious blood was shed for you, never let HIM down.
