Faith

 

MY FAITH

Let me begin by saying that, while I may not be in agreement with them, I respect people of all religions and do not “preach” to my students or shove my personal beliefs on them.  However, since this is my company, I would like to exercise my right to state outwardly what I do not voice in my classes.

Those who have spent even a little time around me know that my relationship with God and my faith in Jesus Christ are the top priority in my life.  My faith is at the center of every aspect of my life—family, career, business, finances, health, etc.  I recognize that every talent and skill I possess has been given to me by God, and I am truly thankful to him for everything with which he has chosen to bless me.  Most importantly, I am thankful for the salvation that has been given me by my Lord Jesus Christ, and the peace that I have, regardless of the trials life brings my way.

MY CHALLENGE

I would like to place the following challenge before you.  If you were to stand before the God of the Bible on Judgment Day, what would the verdict be?  Have you broken the laws of God?  Have you ever lied?  Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value?  Have you ever dishonored your parents?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you have broken the law of God and will stand guilty before him.  Because God is a just and righteous God, he must punish the guilty party.  That punishment is eternal damnation.

Thankfully, God is not only a just and righteous God, but he is also a loving God.  He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)  He sent his only begotten Son to shed his blood on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin.

“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)

The only valid defense one can make on judgment day is to plead the blood of Jesus Christ. “I am guilty as charged, but my penalty has already been paid by the blood of my savior Jesus Christ.”  If you would like to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, believe in him, repent (turn away from) of your sin, and follow after him by reading the Word of God (The Holy Bible) and obeying what you read.

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
