    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).

    The history of Megiddo

     
    • Acts 20:24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace


    I am Megiddo ( no, that's not my real name ), and I wish to serve God to the fullest possible. My greatest reward in life is to come one small inch closer to God ( over and over, of course ). Though that may not seem like much of an accomplishment, you'd be surprised how many miles fly by if you push inch for inch.

    I had been told my whole life that I was saved at the age of five, though I couldn't remember it. I doubted my faith. This, of course, put great strain on me; I was always wondering where I would spend eternity. I felt separated from my church and family, though I could never tell them.

    Then one summer, I went to a Bible camp, and something clicked. It was the best time that I had ever had there, and I learned so much. My counselor at camp was especially helpful, he had a burning desire for the Lord, who I so desperately wanted to serve.

    The same counselor told us one night during Bible study, “Salvation is not a feeling, Satan will often make you think that you're not saved.” I realized that this sounded just like a trick Satan would want to pull, as it kept me in deep turmoil and questioning. So... I stopped doubting!

    Ever since that time, I've been growing closer to my Savior. I have been bought with a price, and there isn't anything that I can do for Him that will possibly repay my debt ( though he does not require anything from me to repay it ).

    I am not always 'on track' with Him. I have days that I turn away from him, but I always come back to Him with an even stronger relationship.

    If you could choose one thing to learn from my life, I hope that you would no longer doubt God or His love for you. There is evidence for God beyond our imagination in our very breath. And He loves us more than we could ever possibly write in the most descriptive words.

    If there is anything else you'd like to know about me, feel free to ask!

    More about me:
    Family-
    I have two brothers, and I am the youngest of my family. My father passed away when I was 2 and my mom has never remarried. My mother's side of the family is Christian, my father's side Mormon.

    Pets-
    We have two cats, one name Misty and the other Pippin. We used to have some rats ( pet rats! ), but we were allergic to them and had to get rid of them.

    Hobbies-
    My hobbies include computer programming, web development, writing, praying, reading, 3D level design, fixing computers, network managing, etc.

    I ran out of time to write for now... I'll add more later!

    Hey, that's a great bio, even if it doesn't tell much more about you than your Faith. Of course, that's the most important part! But, at the same time, do you have a family? Ha ha, that's a joke. I know you do. But, yeah, if you want to add more, we'd all be interested to know.

    Good job! Nice to meet you! ;) ha ha!
