You see that video above, yes, click on it. It's only about 5 minutes but the lyrics and the "main character" in the song is truly the reason I'm alive and breathing today, same goes for you, even if you don't want to admit it.
I'm so glad you're here! This says a few things to me:
a) You're a follower of mine and you check my blog regularly... bless you! hahaha
b) You randomly stumbled upon this post because you saw me post it on facebook and you were bored so you decided to click on it.
c) You were curious and decided to check it out even though you don't know me or share my same beliefs.
d) You googled something and my blog randomly came up, yes, that happens often... WELCOME!
(Yes, there are many, many more reasons you could be here but regardless of that reason, you're here and I've got some pretty amazing things to say today... so please stay.)
I'm not afraid to share my faith with anyone, family, friends, a complete stranger... if there's something you're that passionate about, you shouldn't be ashamed to shout it from the roof tops!
This is one of those for me.
Son of God
God and man
born of a virgin
put to death on a cross
placed in a tomb
3 days later rose again
He is alive today!
Did all that just sound like complete and utter nonsense to you? Are you someone that thinks, "yeah, great story but it's not for me, glad you like it, but please, don't shove it down my throat." Or was it more like "Kim, this is complete and utter craziness, he was just a guy people made up, you're wasting your time learning about him and following him. You're going to live a crappy life even though you've "drank the Christian cool-aid", your life is probably pretty boring and you Christians are too happy, sappy and nice. Thanks, but no thanks."
Did you think. "AMEN! Yes I know that man, I know him as my Lord, my Savior, my God! I know and believe what the Bible says and I follow that risen Savior with reckless abandon because I know, through his life, death and resurrection... and my admission of his existence, belief in his power, confession of my sin I will have eternal life in Heaven once I leave this Earthly life!"
As you know, this weekend we celebrate Easter. To some, Easter is all about pastel colors, eggs, bunnies, new dresses and spring. To me, it's about remembering THE MOST AWFUL and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL event in all of time.
So once again, from my heart to yours...
1. God created the world, it didn't just happen by chance or a "big bang".
2. He also created you and me and everyone and everything else that is or has ever been alive.
3. Life WAS perfect, Garden of Eden... heard of it, Satan tempted us, we gave in, the perfection was destroyed and we messed things up.
4. Jesus was born and sent to Earth for one purpose, to save the world from the sin we created.
5. Jesus was alive on earth for only 30 some odd years but he came bringing good news and he made friends and foes.
6. He was publicly beaten and put to death on a cross.
7. He died.
8. Was put in a tomb.
9. Rose from the dead and now reigns as King of Kings and Lord of all in Heaven.
10. He is my Lord and Savior and I do hope you know Him as the same.
Please, if you want to comment, comment, if you want to email me or call me, I'd love to speak with you. If you still think, after all this, that I am crazy and wasting my life and my life... so be it. I will be praying for you because, dear friend, I would hate for you to die and spend eternity in Hell. And you know what, if I'm wrong and this whole Jesus thing isn't true... at least I lived my life having hope and faith in something that caused me to think beyond myself and positively impact people around me.
