Life is full of questions, but what questions do I truly want answered that have meaning to me. What questions if I received the answers to would change me and the way I live my life? Deep questions from within me that my very soul, the essence of who I am, cries out to understand.
Who Can I Turn To For Answers?
There is no one like JESUS. Only He can answer these questions that used to torment my soul:
Who am I? I am a child of God; Jesus is my Lord, and my King. I was given to Jesus by God as a love gift. I am one of His sheep.
How did I get here? God said in Psalm 139 vs 13 that He knew me before I was in my Mother’s womb in eternity past. God said in Romans 8 vs.29, that whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become a believer in His Son Jesus.
What am I to do here on earth? I am to live out the “Great Commission”: To make disciples of all nations, teaching people about the word of God; telling all the Good News of John 3:16.
Where am I going when I die? Because Jesus died for my sins and He was resurrected, and He is alive today; I too will live forever with Him in heaven because I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.
“Because He lives” are the 3 small words I base my entire existence upon. They form a foundation of how I should be witnessing to those all around me.
God is looking for those that seek Him. Today there are very few people that are truly seeking Him. Throughout the Old and New Testaments only one message clearly comes through.
That there have always been and always will be the many and the few,
the lost and the found.
History is rooted in time, but the time is coming when time will be no more.
When I pray for people to witness too I ask God to bring those that are sincerely seeking Him. I am called by Christ to be able to defend my faith in this battle for the minds, hearts and souls of people. That battle usually comes when people attack my faith. I do not expect to win over people who attack my faith because their purpose is only to attack.
But by being able to defend my faith, standing in strength in front of those that attack me; those people around me listening and watching see and hear that I do not believe in myths, fairy tales or legends.
My faith is in someone real. Both His life and His Death and Resurrection are rooted in history. Explaining those documented facts is the only topic and the only point of witnessing. That is why Jesus asks you the question that echo’s throughout time…“Who do you say that I am?”
