Am I better than you? No, I am the filthy rag he uses to wash away the sins of those who ask for his help. Jesus washes away the filth with his blood. Once we accept Jesus as our savior, and follow the ' Word ' of God ( Holy Bible ), we try to be ' Christians ', ( Christ Like ) so the world will see the path to salvation is ' lit '. We will shine a path for the lost to follow by our Christ Like lives. My goal is to worship Our Savior Christ Jesus, and to do all things that please him. I pray that you will be inspired to do the same.
Through all that this world throws at you, remember He will never let you go through more than you can handle. When you look back at the foot prints in the sand that make up your life and ask Jesus, "why during the hardest times in my life did you desert me as I see by the lone single set of foot prints"? Jesus replied, " My dear child, it was during those times that I carried you ".
P.S. I am a HAPPILY MARRIED, father of 7 Children, & 7 cats. Even the lost kittens will find refuge within your Christ Like lives. These cats I have were brought to us by Jesus. The people that follow Christ will see that I am the place for these lost kittens to call home. The 2 siblings of 7 total, were dropped off at the door of Midland Animal Hospital after being abused they were placed in a burlap bag at night. 4 were thrown away and left to die in ditches, all separate times. The last one "Precious" was the worse. He was 3 weeks old and severely abused and neglected. He was so sick that he couldn't see, eat, could hardly breath, and he couldn't even cry any more. We took him to the vet right away and got him the meds he needed to survive. It took her 3 days to be able to eat just one piece of food. The next day he ate 11. Soon he could sleep, eat, see, and then he was able to thank me. He slept at the foot of my bed on a heating pad for 11 days and now he is the King of his household. Very lovable and quite Precious.
Please trust that God loves you and wants you to have life more abundant than you could ever imagine. Give him all of whatever is in the way of your happiness and let him take you there.
Do you want to change the world? You can, all you have to do is forgive those who trespass against you. Learn how to love your neighbor as you love your self. Above all these things you will need to Love, Cherish, & Honor God in all you do. He will give you the desires of your heart, & favor with man. Don't try to fill that God shaped hole we all have with anything else. Don't store your treasures here on Earth. You can't take any of that with you.
Accept Christ Jesus as your Lord & Savior, & don't be ashamed to shout it to the world. Be Baptized in The Holy Spirit & let Him guide you through all the days of your life. Keep a close eye out for the hidden path, & the narrow gate. Read Gods Love Letter, The Holy Bible. Its message is hidden from the lost and the faithless. You will know the lesson every time as you encounter the obstacles in life for having read The Word Of God.
Your body is a Holy Temple where The Holy Spirit resides. You will need to take great care of what goes into, & out of it. Watch what you read, hear, see, eat, touch, do, say, & think. Are you perfect, or better that everyone else at this point? No, you are still a sinner. As we all are as filthy rags in His sight. The difference is that we have Grace through Faith by hearing The Word Of God. Having accepted Christ & been Baptized in The Holy Spirit. We are now a new Creature.

We are up to 7 Cats now.
Cow ( Moo ),
Bubbles ( Pepsi- Bubbles ).
They were all thrown away and found in ditches, in a burlap sack after severe abuse, or just dropped. off @ shelter. They are all precious to me. precious was found in a ditch and it was very cold. He couldn't see, stand, eat, hardly breath, or even cry. We took him the our vet and he had everything need to get well. When he was with us for 11 days, he was able to thank me. He slept on the foot of our bed on a heating pad. He would nussle on my beard with his mouth, and knead on my neck. So I got up every 4 hours and warmed up some milk for him. I had done this for Junior, and when we got the twins, Brunette, and Logan, Jr. would help them as their surrogate Mother. Just as I did for Jr.
People need stop throwing them away. This mounts to neighborhoods full of strays. I did not ask for 7 cats. , I am allergic to them or their fur. I still snuggle with them. Each have their own special personality. All of them greet the morning Sun, in different ways .
Some of you may have noticed that I repeat, ramble on, and drift to new subjects. I have had 7 mini strokes (TIA's) which left me mentally disabled. Even though I may never be able to mentally, or physically handle returning to any kind of job, and most daily household functions, Jesus has NEVER left me. No not once, not even for a short time. Its been 12 years since I was hit by a car, that ran a red light while I was riding my bicycle. It took me 8 years to be able to walk unassisted by a chair, crutches, walker, braces, and finally a cane. Now I just have to steady my self for a minute when I stand to start walking. Jesus is truly a wonderful comfort and a great best friend.
If you are lost & need to find the way back out of the hell you are in, Follow the 'Roman Road'. God loves you & He wants you to know He created you for a special purpose. Let Him in so He can give you life more abundant than anyone could ever imagine.
Romans 1:20-21: "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." We must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything and accept our humble position in God's creation.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.” We must all realize that we are sinners and that we need forgiveness. We are not worthy of God’s grace.
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Through Jesus, God gave us a way to be saved from our sins. God showed us His love by giving us the potential for life through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If we remain sinners, we will die. However, if we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and repent of our sins, we will have eternal life.
Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Just confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved!
Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” There are no religious formulas or rituals -- Call upon the name of the Lord and you will be saved!
Romans 11:36: "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen." Determine in your heart to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today.
Roman Road: Are You Ready to Accept God’s Gift of Salvation?
If you truly believe the message of the Roman Road, and want to accept God’s gift of salvation right now, it's a matter of repenting of your sins and turning the rest of your life over to Jesus Christ. Again, this is not a ritual based on any specific words or prayers, but rather, a willful decision and a sincere step of faith.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38)
The Holy Bible. Its a love letter.
