For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

once lost, now found

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

What an incredible truth. I once was lost, but now am found. I was separated from Jesus Christ. Someone let the love of the Savior shine through their lives... their fire was burning bright. They were not afraid to stand out amidst the sin in this world. Through their faithfulness and love for God, I was illuminated to the truth of the Gospel. THE GOOD NEWS.

I lived in this world, blindly... unaware of my Savior. Unaware of the one who bled for me. Now I can confidently stand and proclaim that I KNOW the Creator of this World. I praise God for the price that was paid... for the gift that has been given. Salvation is here. Jesus Christ is salvation. Men deny Christ, yet He STILL desires their love. He never gives up. He never fails. He passionately pursues His children.

I, as a CHILD of the one true God, have a great responsibility. NO... privilege, to spread the good news of Christ... to all. To those who I love. to those who I despise. to those I have yet to meet. to those who have all this world has to offer. to those who have nothing. TO ALL. I am challenged. I am burdened. I am choosing to become active for God's glory.

I constantly fail, yet stand firm on the truth that NOTHING can separate me from the love of Christ. My faith in Jesus Christ grows daily. He challenges me to grow. He forces me out of my box... out of my comfort zone... yet never leaves me through it all. He has provided the Holy Spirit to guide... to comfort... to lead. I stand on this truth. He wants to use me for His glory... He wants me to take His story to the world. He has shown me what it means to love.
...I once was lost, but now am found...
