Who Are You? (Jerry 3/26/14)

WHOAMI_icon_300x

Who are you? Are you a banker, lawyer, landscaper, stay at home mom? Are you who you are because the world says that is who you are? It’s really not important who we are in the world but who we are in Christ. Would our co-workers know that we follow Christ if we didn’t tell them?

Who was Christ? The religious leaders thought that He was just an unclean, nobody who was casting out demons by the power of Beezlebub. It doesn’t matter if you are the richest person in the world. If you don’t have Jesus then you have nothing. “What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?” What does matter is that we know Christ and walk according to His ways. If we have Christ we have everything.

What do we do after Christ has made us new and forgiven us for our sins? Do we just come to church and listen to the preacher until we die? I know that everyone is not called into the ministry and when I say ministry, I am talking about being a preacher, teacher, evangelist. But when we were forgiven of our sins through Christ we were called into the ministry whether we want to be or not. We can minister to those we work around. We can let our life be a testimony. We aren’t to sit idly by and be ashamed to be a child of the Most High God, Creator of the universe. We walk the walk and talk the talk on a daily basis. That’s how we are ministers. A lot of people are scared or worried about being ambassadors of Christ because they think that they have to be perfect. If we wait until we’re perfect to tell people about Jesus then it’s never going to happen.

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
