In this issue of So Help Me God from the LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces, readers are encouraged to consider their identity that is found in the cross of Jesus Christ. The Christian identity is one of contrast — the “sinner/saint dichotomy.”

Nonetheless, Christians are a people who live in hope as they wait on the promise that has already been fulfilled.

In addition, a road map to excellence in Christian leadership is provided based on the Magnificant, or Mary’s Song, taken from Luke 1:51–53. From these verses, Martin Luther identifies the “Six Works of God.”

The newsletter also includes online resources that can help us grow in Christ.
