    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.

    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).

    Story!

       Well, this post is going to be a story! I have recently been talking to someone ( a person who is an answer to prayers, by the way! ) who has been through more than her share of problems. Talking to her was another eye opener to what goes on in the world.

       She saved three kids from a river once, and came down with pneumonia, and now has chronic bronchitis ( nice work on saving the kids by the way! ). She has been a Young Marine, and plans on joining the Marines as a lance corpral.

       Her best friend tried to kill her with her own pocket knife, and was stabbed three times in the face and once in the right thigh. A guy that was in the Young Marines raped her. She said that the guy who did that loved Eminem's music. Eminem has a song that he wrote that tells how to rape a young girl ( it is not suprising then, where he got the idea from ).

       I always knew that stuff like this happened, but I never talked to a victim, so I always thought that it was a far away problem. I told her that it was a terrible thing that she went through, and I don't know if the guy that did it ever repented his act, but it was a terrible thing for him to do. Men should be the leaders. Most women look up to men as their leaders, and this should not be a responsibility taken lightly from men.

       I have done some terrible things myself, things which I don't know if I'll ever forgive myself for. But, on the bright side, I have come out a much better person then I was before because of it. I can love God all the more! I hope this is the same view that the gal from the story above takes.

       In conclusion, while I talked to her, she said something really inspiring to me. Here it is: "My sins are a great many, and my skin is cold, my memories are wicked but my touch and heart are warm"

       Thank you so much for sharing your story!
