It's a Choice

We come into this world heading for a place that none of us want to end up. That place is darkness and desolate. It is hell!

We enter into this world, with the DNA of an amazing creator – our Creator. And our amazing Creator, pursues us and pursues us and pursues us.

So what do we do?
We choose!
We believe that Jesus is who He says He is.
We believe that God loves us passionately, as well as compassionately.
We believe in a Savior.
We believe to believe what He tells us through His Word.

And we live out that choice, in action.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." ~John 3:16 (King James Version)
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord." ~Romans 6:23 (New International Version)

#givingthanksdaily for His grace and gift.

"This means that our knowledge of men can no longer be based on their outward lives (indeed, even though we knew Christ as a man we do not know him like that any longer). For if a man is in Christ he becomes a new person altogether—the past is finished and gone, everything has become fresh and new. All this is God’s doing, for he has reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ; and he has made us agents of the reconciliation. God was in Christ personally reconciling the world to himself—not counting their sins against them—and has commissioned us with the message of reconciliation. We are now Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were appealing direct to you through us. As his personal representatives we say, “Make your peace with God.” For God caused Christ, who himself knew nothing of sin, actually to be sin for our sakes, so that in Christ we might be made good with the goodness of God." ~1 Corinthians 5:16-21 (J.B. Phillips New Testament)

I love people. My life has been spent seeking new friendships and helping others. God's gifting is being worked out into His plan for me. I am excited to share insights of His leadings and lessons.
