My name is Sharilee. At the age of six, I accepted Jesus into my heart. Since then, He has been with me, through it all. I have not always been faithful to Him, but I do see how He has been faithful to me. I am starting this blog to share what I have been learning from the Scriptures, through study, through other reading and through preaching. I hope it will be an encouragement to you.
If you are a Christian, welcome! I love to have you here as a fellow brother or sister in the LORD. If you are not a believer, you can accept Jesus Christ as the one who saves you, by:
- Admitting that you are a sinner. That means that you have done, and do wrong things, and that these wrong things keep you from being perfect and gaining access to God.
- Believing that Jesus Christ died on a cross, and literally took your place, so that you do not have to die eternally.
- Accepting Jesus Christ as the only way to have access to the Father God. Accepting that his death takes the place of your death, and through him, you are forgiven of your sins and gain eternal life.
Accepting Jesus is a complete act of surrender and submission. It is admitting that we cannot save ourselves, and that Jesus is "the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh to the father but by him." When you take this step, you are a believer, a Christian. And it is exciting! I became a believer many years ago, when I was six years ago, and never regretted it.
The Grace of God is a beautiful thing. Most people in this world do not have grace. We all wish for justice, when a wrong is done. But God went beyond justice, and gave us grace. All we have to do is accept it.
