I go through life clueless most of the time. I may have mentioned that before. But seriously, I do! I feel so strongly about my relationship with the Lord, and what He has done for me, that I'm a lot like Peter and John; "We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard" (Acts 4:20) And I mean that sincerely. I can't help it. I have to speak about Jesus!
My words on this website are truly meant to bring life, light, and hope to those whose lives seem dark, cold, and empty. My whole purpose for this ministry, this website, is to help people find their purpose through forgiveness, grace, and hope...which ultimately boils down to life, light, and hope! There is always hope. And Jesus is Life AND Light! So in all fairness, this whole website is about HIM!
But I wanted to take it just a little further so that maybe to someone who doesn't understand the whole life, light, and hope thing, they would gain an "Aha!" moment.
Life: Jesus came so that we may have LIFE. He came, He suffered, He died, and He rose again...all for YOU! So you can have such an abundant life. That includes here on earth, and continuing into eternity. Sounds far fetched, but it really isn't. And Jesus is the ONLY way we are ever going to have that life.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. ~John 10:10 (emphasis added)
Light: Jesus is the Light of the world. By making Him Lord and Savior of your life, you become light as well. Because without you telling others about Him, how else are they going to hear?
Hope: By sharing what Christ has done for you, you give someone else hope that their life isn't useless. You may just help someone else to claim the promises of God and go on to give someone else hope!
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. ~Hebrews 10:24, NLT
I don't do what I do to get praise from others. But now and again, a comment from someone I truly look up to is humbling. Yes, I'll admit that it does make me feel good, for just a moment. Then I realize that were it not for the relationship that I have with the Lord, I wouldn't say the things that I do! So really, the praise goes to Him! I'm merely doing what He has placed in my heart to do. Sometimes it's here on this website. Sometimes, it gets put on Facebook. Sometimes, Twitter. And on many occasions it gets put on all three!
I don't think you can talk about the Lord too much. But even more, I don't think you can encourage people too much, either. So let me encourage all of you..."Keep speaking life, light, and hope!"
