"To Paul NF~ Great letter!"
Good point on Faith!
It reminds of
the idea that 'anyone who believes in God is Christian', and even those
who 'believe in Jesus' are 'saved'. I remember when I was first leaning
toward Christianity...I wanted what my then boyfriend/now husband had.
I'd always wanted what my church going friends had growing up, just
never knew exactly how to get it.
When Tom (my hubby), told me
that he could not be 'unevenly yoked', and that he'd only marry a
Christian, I was afraid of losing him, so my first steps were selfish.
The thing is, Satan saw the 'danger' of losing me, and sent all kinds
of 'attacks'...the thing is, it sorta backfired on him! It made me see
that what I was seeking was REAL!
I admit that I was a
'Christian in name only' when we married, I 'believed', I'd 'given my
life' to Christ...but it was a true conversion experience in that first
year that made my walk true and real. And it was an act of FAITH that
tipped the scale.
Thank you for posting that very important message.
You can tell that to Paul when we meet him up there!
No doubt, he is now busy preparing for our welcome party. :)
