    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).

    Failures and successes

    As my birthday swiftly approaches, I am forced to look back on my past year of failure after failure. This past year has not been one the happiest I've ever had. ( but then again, happiness is relative. )

    The only thing that gives me hope looking back on the past is what little successes I had, actually counted for a lot. I may have failed time and time again, but my success rate outnumbers my failures.


    As long as you keep trying in the name of God, you will have more success than failure. If you never try, you don't have a choice but to fail. ( Thank you Lord for putting up with my failures and always being there for me. )


    Looking back always lets you reflect on things that you need to improve on. Myself, I am always too judgmental, ( whose place is it to judge but the High Judge Himself? ) and self-centered.

    I know that this seems weird that I think of these things now instead of at New Years, ( where people often make 'New Years resolutions' ) but I always think of New Years of just another day. Your birthday, though, symbolizes another year that you have spent on Earth.

    Happy Birthday!

    I hope this next year is a whole lot better than the last year was.

    If it's not too personal, how old will you be?
