The blog that made me think

I've just been reading a blog by a guy called Pete who lives in Venezuela. (I'm not gonna make a link to it just yet, but i'll keep reading it, so you never know). He is brand new at blogging, so I got to be first to comment on his blog, which was quite exciting for me :-)

Anyway, Pete is a Christian and made that very clear from the start of his blog. Reading it made me realise that all the stuff I've written about buying a new car, and going to the dentist and all that is part of who I am, but not the whole story. So, laying my cards on the table, I'll tell you that I am also a Christian. I believe that Jesus was fully man and fully God, and that he actually lived on this earth. He was born, and died for me, to take away my sins, so that I can have a relationship with God. You might be thinking "ok, that's for you, but not for me", but I don't believe that can be true. For me there is one absolute, not many, and that one absolute is God. I don't want to be all preachy, because that's not who I am, but I did want to get that out in the open so that anyone reading my blog from now on can understand how my faith affects the way I behave, the things that I do and say, and the person that I am. I'm sorry if that offends anyone, but that's just who I am and what I believe.

So, happy Tuesday :-)

Hi Debs, thanks for your comment on my blog, and for mentioning it on your own! I think it's great that you can share your faith with your friends and those who read your blog. Keep doing it because if what we believe is true (and I really think it is), they need to hear it. The way you present your faith here is very clear and might really help somebody. I'm proud of you! Keep going and I wish you all the best in the future.
