I started this blog in the hopes that it would motivate me to share the truth about God and Jesus to my children. Although I never really thought many people would read it, I found that it motivated me to complete a devotion each day thinking that “someone, somewhere” might be reading it. And a little over a year later, I had written 365 posts.
Although I don’t have a huge following, I have noticed that the hits on blog from Pinterest have really increased–which is awesome! I want all children to hear and learn about God’s Word and His saving love for us.
That being said I pray all my readers, young and old, experience God’s Truth. First, there is only one book, the Bible, that is the true Word of God. There is no other book written by anyone else that contains God’s truths.
Rev 22:18-19 says “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (KJV)
Proverbs 30:6 says “Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
The Bible is the final, authoritative Word from God.
Second, God created us and God has always existed. Time is a physical property, just like gravity, and our sovereign God is in control of both. I am looking forward to being in God’s glory for eternity because I believe that Jesus was the Son of God, born of a virgin. He came to earth to die for our sins because He loved us so much that He was willing to give His life for us. He came down to Heaven to teach us about Himself and prepare us to go to Heaven.
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Third, there is only one God; there are no other gods. No where in the Bible does it teach that we will become gods. We are perfected in Christ, but we will still be humbled to be before our Lord and Savior. Because we are fallen human beings, we sin: we think poorly of our neighbor, we yell at our children, and we sometimes mistreat our spouse. Only because Jesus died on the cross and paid the cost for my sins will I be able to stand in front of a perfect, holy, good God, who has no tolerance for evil or sin.
…there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
Last, but not least, God’s grace is a free gift that can not be earned. Grace by definition is something that is unmerited. When is the last time that you offered to make a meal or babysit for someone who spoke poorly of you or hurt one of your children? That is what grace is; doing those things for the person who least deserves it. It is only because of God’s love and His grace that we can overcome our sinful nature and be resurrected with Him in Heaven.
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
I am a Christian. Jesus is my rock and foundation of my life. He loves me, He came down from Heaven to save me. He loves you and came here to save you too!
