You have probably read on my about page where I said I am a third generation Christian.
My dad and mom are in ministry for almost 50 years now.
But, just because I am born in a pastor's family, doesn't mean I do not have to anything to secure my place in heaven! Salvation is individual based! Meaning, God saves a person when he or she places his or her trust in the Lord - personally!
I would go to Church as usual, but that was more for playing instruments. Or I would go to Church because I was concerned about what people would think about me because I am a pastor's son.
It was not until I heard or paid attention for the first time to Hebrews 11:6 - "Now without faith it is impossible to please God," is when I realized that I need to place my trust and faith in Jesus and accept Him as my Savior! That is when I became a "real" Christian, meaning someone who truly trusts in Jesus Christ.
But, placing trust in Jesus didn't make my life easy. I am declared righteous, yes; I belong to Him, yes; I am His child, yes; my eternal life is secure with Him, yes; but with all these, there is still what I have to go through (like you all) - life. Life is full of ups and downs; Christian life is a journey towards becoming holy, becoming like Him. Christian walk is not easy! So, we face many issues in our lifetime.
But, we should not worry. Why? Look at the following points:
So, Christian life is difficult; having faith in God is difficult, yet this is what we need to do - to trust Him with OUR LIFE! Why? Because that pleases God; and our life should be all about pleasing God.
Live a life of faith and please God - because faith in God matters.
Therefore, Be Strong In Your Faith!
