I am a Christian blogger. I write most of my blogs as if I am talking to Christian bloggers. However, the chances are that some readers are not Christians. I want to be sure I make it plain that I hope to see you all in Heaven. A place we can get to only though the sacrifice Jesus paid for our sins. So….
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW JESUS?
God loves you so much that he gave Jesus, His Son, to die for your sins.
John 3:16 “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.”
You can’t be good enough to redeem yourself. You must admit you are a sinner who needs to be saved by Jesus.
Romans 3 :23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”
No other way but Jesus.
Romans 3:24 “(you) are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus”
Acts 4: 12 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there
is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
You can be saved by believing that Jesus died for your sins and rose again.
Then you “seal the deal” by saying that Jesus is your Lord.
Romans 10:8-10 “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart. That is the word of faith .. .If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.”
I expect to remain here on “sweet aroma” for years to come, but I confess to wondering what the future might be, even for me in the present upheaval being manifest in our world. If the election allows a take-over by the Democrats, there will be giant changes away from the freedoms I have assumed would last my lifetime. Now I’m not sure. Not free to worship, not free to buy and sell (except at “approved” places) sounds a lot like we are near the days of Revelation. Be ready!!!
I feel the same way, Oneta. I did not expect to gain so many followers, or that they would be from all over the world, and not all of them Christian. So recently I have tried to include the Gospel somewhere in every post, as there may be people who only visit my blog once, and I don’t want them to miss the most important thing I have to tell, them. 😉
Maybe the Lord is dealing with us all to put His Name out there. I can only be a go-between. Thanks for the comment.
You are an inspiration Oneta! Keep boldly proclaiming God’s love, people need it more than ever.
When I went to your blog today, it felt good to know that I know you. And keep passing the love of the Lord. Your comment is sweet. Thanks.
Thanks, Omega, for this great post.
I believe, for sure, that non Christians read our posts, and many may be attracted to our faith, but do not know how to become Christians.
Yes, I believe many are drawn to the testimony of lives that have been lived as a testimony to Christ. Our journey with him is not without troubles, but many of us have been delivered out of trouble in astonishing ways. Thanks, Sally. Keep encouraging.
Thanks. For sure, many are drawn to Christ by lives that are lived as a testament to Him. 🌷🤗
You are my shining star!!!!
Thank you dear Oneta. Please keep shining your God Light in your own way where-ever. I was criticised by some when I called my blog Passionate Creative Christian. but I have to be that in my whole expression of who God is forming me to be. I am an imperfect vessel being transformed by His Grace. We are heading in this whole world in one direction Now. It is written One HOLY BRIDE for ONE Holy LORD.Again thank you sincerely.
for ONE Holy Lord. Keep safe keep praying Keep looking UP. keep writing
Oh, my goodness, dear. I am as a grain of sand – rubbed down to a glisten, at least I hope for the glisten part.. Now you can tell I read the promise of God to Abraham about descendants as the sands and the stars. Yep, this morning. Thanks for your kindness. Your post today was outstandingly bold, you courageous little Witness.
Maybe too bold as my husband, who does not read “my blob” as he is not exceedingly tech savvy, does tell me to tone down my ire as he thinks those who disagree will come get me— but I tell him I must speak when I feel God tells me to do so
Thank you for sharing your faith! What a blessing to our Lord!!
I tried to link back to you and found a closed blog. Did you start up another one? If so, let me know where to find you. Thank you for the comment. Hopefully we all make a chain that will lead to Jesus.
i love this!!
Ashley, I went over to your blog and see your topic. I think it is very important for you to pursue telling about your story. I have a blogger friend who is also adopted. She has written several blogs about her victories and pains along life’s way. She is a precious Christian; I believe you would love to read her story. Go over and get acquainted with her. I will send her your link also. Her name is Cookie or Julie. Thanks for leaving me a comment. Her link: https://cookiecrumbstoliveby.wordpress.com/
Thanks so much! I will get in touch with her.
Good work Ashley… Direct and applicable:) Love it
Thank you for reading my blog. You are kind to leave a comment. I enjoyed your post explaining the difference between correlation and cause of sin and sickness, and obedience and blessing/health. Keep a daily walk in Him, as he walks with you through the bipolar ordeal.
