Hi everyone! I am a girl who loves Jesus, and for my very first post, I’d like to share His love with you readers.
God loves you. He created you in His holy image, and knows how many hairs are on top of your head (Matthew 10:30)! He thinks about you more times in a single day than there are grains of sand on this planet(Psalm 139:17-18). Sadly, because of our sin (anything wrong we do, from lying to murder), we can’t enter the perfect kingdom of Heaven when we pass away (Romans 3:23). But as I said, God loves us. Because of that love, He sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to become a human and die an unimaginably painful death; through the death of that perfect human, we can be saved and forgiven for all our sin. But, it’s like if someone were holding out a gift to you. It’s not yours until you take it. God yearns for you to receive that gift and become His child, but it won’t happen unless you are willing to take it. All you have to do is pray; you don’t need to kneel and close your eyes, although that is respectful. Simply ask Him to come into your heart and forgive you for all your sin. He will, and you will be His child and live in His kingdom one day (John 11:40) ! Now isn’t that something to look forward to? I have accepted Him, and trust me, it is!
Throughout the next few months, I will continue with this blog and see where it takes me. I am planning to start a devotional eventually and also to answer any questions you guys have. I hope to take requests for what to post about, for example, if someone asked me “How do you be modest and trendy at the same time?” I might write a post on that. Any thoughts on today’s post? Please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading!
