Jesus, His Son’s Sacrifice
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
God shows his love for us in a lot of ways, but the most important way was giving us His Son, Jesus. The sacrifice of Jesus’s life on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice ever made in the name of love. He did this to show us, even though we are sinners, He loves us and wants us to live in eternity with Him.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Psalms 34:17,18
Life isn’t always easy. Some days, nothing seems to go our way. Challenges pile up, then we become stressed and unhappy. At these times it isn’t easy to praise God. Digging into The Word can comfort our troubled minds.
My title says it all. At least it says how I hope I live my life. My faith in God is a high priority. In all I do, He is consulted. And I do mean everything. I believe that in order to live by faith you need to keep a running conversation going with Him. The Bible says “to pray without ceasing…” My conversations are a form of prayer.
I decided to write this blog so I can share the joy and peace I get from my living by faith. In reading my stories, I hope you will feel a little of what I feel. My goal is that these posts will be an inspiration to you. If my faith, and perhaps yours too, grows stronger, that would be a welcome bonus. It would also be great if we were to develop a new community in Christ and spread the Word.
Until next time, God Bless you.
