    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    What is love?

       I find that other people's defintion of love is astounding. They seem to think that love is a physical attraction ('Oh! It was love at first sight!').

       I was talking to my friend Garret the other day. I can't remember exactly what was said, but it was something like this.

       Garret said, "I have a new girlfriend. She's really cool."

       I said, "Nice, I wish I had a girlfriend..."

       Garret said, "Why don't you?"

       I replied, "Because the only way I would ever tell a girl that I love her is if I would be willing to marry her and care for her for the rest of my life."

       Garret said nastily, "Then you're just wierd."

       Love is not a word to be taken lightly and just thrown about at a whim. I promise you that 98% of the 'love at first sights' never last long. After the break-up, we have all these people wandering around saying how they lost all that mattered to them. How can you lose something that you never had unless you stole it? These people sadden me at their 'loss', yet disgust me for thinking that they could have it.

       So now that the word love has been disgustingly twisted, what word is there to describe a  willingness to do anything for them? Servanthood seems in the area of what I'm looking for, but a relationship should include two servants serving God and eachother, not a master and a servant.

    I think love is a delicate word that has no meaning. A defintion is made when somebody thinks they understand what a word is symbolized for, but that is it. Sure love has a meaning in your heart, but that is all. NO one can tell you what love is until you experience it for yourself.

    But you should tell the person your dating whatever you feel about them. I heard this today: "Falling in love are you? Are you sure you're not falling in lust?"

    Okay, i see were your coming from. All that junk you here like love at first sight, and soul mates. But just because your dating someone dosen't mean that you love them

    wow! very insightful, and i have to say i totally agree. personally i don't beleive in love at first sight because wouldn't that be very superficial. your basing it on how the person looks, nothing else. sure there could attraction but nothing else.
