Hi, I am a Born Again Believer and Follower of The Lord Jesus Christ and saved by Grace through Faith and not by works and a Redeemed sinner and covered by The Blood of Jesus and I have a personal relationship with Jesus. An Evangelist who preaches the Gospel and I believe that Jesus came to the earth was born of a virgin died on the Cross for our sin and rose again from the dead 3 days later and is coming back very soon And Jesus is the God Man Fully God Fully Man And I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that Jesus is The Way and Only Way to get to God. Check out these Bible Verses. John 14:6 New King James Version (NKJV) 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 11:25-26 New King James Version (NKJV) 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 New King James Version (NKJV) 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He was seen by [a]Cephas, then by the twelve. Ephesians 2:8-10 New King James Version (NKJV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Colossians 2:5 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing [a]to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ. God Bless! MARANATHA!! Yet not I, but through Christ in me

  1. This is such a profound point: “Why, blessed be His name, if He never granted me another favour, I have enough for which to thank Him as long as I have any being.” That changes how we view our problems.
