But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8
As I was travelling along a major interstate this past weekend, I looked up and saw a billboard with this message: YOU DON’T NEED GOD- TO HOPE, TO LOVE, TO CARE, TO LIVE.
I do not know about you, but my mouth dropped wide open when I read this. Now, I know Atheist have their right to freedom of speech just as we do, but this just took my breath away! The first thought that came to my mind was, “what are the new Christians thinking when they read this? They are just beginning their journey of a new life with God and still are in the learning process. They are still learning what is means to be a Christian”. What about the people who want to believe in God, yet they are uncertain about their decision? When they read this billboard, will they believe it and not believe in God and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior?
If there is one thing this woman knows it is this: There is a GOD! He is REAL! He Loves US! He CARES for us! There is HOPE in GOD!
All I have to do is look back on my life and see God’s hand all over it. There were times that I should have died, BUT GOD! According to the doctor my mother was never going to have children. She had five. BUT GOD! I did not believe I would ever overcome many pains, sorrows and hardships. BUT GOD…………….
Yes, this woman believes in God! This woman believes that God is REAL!!!! This woman knows without a doubt that GOD is LIFE! This woman knows that God is LOVE! This woman knows that God CARES for me deeply! How do I know it?
I am not ashamed to let the world know that God is REAL!!!! Jesus was not ashamed of me and I know the things I used to do He had every right to but He DIDN’T! He accepted me “JUST AS I WAS”. How can I not stand up for my Lord and Savior who died a horrible and terrible death for me? I refuse to lay down and not stand up for my God. He has been way to GOOD to me.
I pray you will let the world know on your blog that you do believe in God and that you will stand up for Him!
Let us stand UNITED AS ONE FOR OUR GOD WHO IS MORE THAN WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!
(btw I believe the devil tried his best for me not to post this! I lost my internet connection right when I was getting ready to hit he “Publish Post’ button. HMMMM Greater is He who lives in me than the one who rules this world! Thank you Jesus!)
