So, let me introduce myself. I am wife, mother, friend, writer, singer, teacher, daughter, sister, and most importantly, a follower of the Way. I will be clear from the start, with no apologies: I love Jesus. I believe he is fully God, fully Man, Saviour, Redeemer. I believe God created the universe and mankind, that sin entered the world through the deception of Satan and the disobedience of Adam and Eve. I believe Jesus died on the cross to atone for our sins, and rose to life on the third day, thus conquering death as the perfect sacrifice. He offers the gift of salvation freely: all we have to do is accept and believe. I know it seems far-fetched to some, but when I look around at the world, the universe we live in, the miracles all around us every day, I find it easier to believe the Bible than to believe it all happened by accident.
I say this up front so that as a reader, you will know the grid I look through. You don't have to love or believe in God to read, just understand that for me, everything comes back to Jesus. If that is too offensive, I wish you peace and grace as you take your leave of these pages, and I lift you to God's care.
I welcome respectful, kind comments, and I'd love to encourage you be brave: put your name to your words, friends. I welcome dialogue, but I reserve the right to delete unsavoury comments. Know this: even if I delete, I will pray that God continues to pursue you relentlessly, because he loves you and it is not his wish that any should perish (II Peter 3:9).
Whatever faith you claim or don't claim, I invite you to rest here with me. Take the long way with me for awhile; let's share stories together and see where it leads.
Love to you, Jes! Thanks for taking time to write and for inviting us to journey along with you.ReplyDelete
