A lot of people ask me why I like to blog. Is it because I like the attention or do I do it just to gain new followers? I can honestly tell you that no I do not blog because I want followers. I do it because I love to write and to share my stories with others. I know I may not be the best writer or even have a way with words but I enjoy being able to write all my thoughts down. Lately I have found that I have not been posting many personal posts. I need to change that. I will start with this post.
I'm not really open about how important my faith is to me. I guess it is because I don't like when other's push their religion at me, it turns me off. However, I have learned that there is pushy and then there is keeping it to yourself. I want to be neither of those people. I want to be able to educate people about my faith with out being overbearing.
Well here it goes...
I am a born again Christian. I believe with my heart, mind, body and soul that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I know that only through the acceptance of Christ can I have eternal life. I am saved because of Christ. I am not making this up. This comes straight from the Word itself. I think the reason I am not always upfront about my faith is because I have found that when you tell someone you are a Christian they think that you think you are better than them, that you live a perfect life. I can tell you right now that has never been further from the truth. I am a sinner. As long as I am human I will be a sinner. There are a couple things about being a Christian and being a sinner. First is we are all sinners and any one who tells you other wise is lying. The second is that being a Christian that sins verses a non believer that sins is we know better and yet we still do it. The reason for this is what I said before. As long as we are human we will continue to sin. We are not perfect and if someone tells you that, well lets just say that's a load of bologna because there is only one perfect person and He is the one who was tortured for all of our sins. He loves us so unconditionally that He died to save us. He died to save everyone of us. Are we all deserving of this? Yes we are. A sin is a sin. There is no difference between the little sin of a white lie or that of comitting murder. This is where a lot of people will disagree with me but it's true. If one truly accepts Christ and asks for forgiveness for the sins they have committed then Christ will always forgive you. You are now His child and He will never leave you. You are His forever. To me that is the most comforting feeling in the world. That no matter how bad life may get, I will never truly be alone.
And that's my personal post for today :)
