I'm a devout Christian and God means more to me than anything else. As I said in a speech once, "as I live for him now I hope to die for him later". There are many ways -even wonderful ways- to die, but I can think of no way more glorious than to die for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love to read things that build me up as a believer. There is so much insight and knowledge about God found in books (if you get the right ones) that it seems prudent to take advantage of it.
I am a student of Missouri State University which is also where I am employed. I love kids. I like to read and talk of the things of God, and I love to witness.

You're welcome. It's something we all need to be reminded of.
Basically, my position on the Law is this:
1. We are saved by faith alone, not by works we have done.
2. Christ came to fulfill the Law, not to destroy it. That means that the Law functions the same way as it always did (as a schoolmaster), but Christ, the One to whom it always pointed, is now come, and we are no longer bound to obey the ceremonies that had no other function than to herald Him.
3. The Moral Law (summarized in the Ten Commandments and in the Great Commandment) abide forever, because they are a reflection of the character of God, who cannot change. We don't adhere to this law in order to be saved; we grow in conformity to this law as a necessary result of having been saved.
Very! i'm in a church that is very missions focused (sometimes a little too much! too much of anything can be a not so good thing, right?) and two of my sisters have been out of country. one to peru, and one to uganda. God hasn't given me that opportunity yet, but i pray it's in his will for me. i've been to philidelphia, and am headed to a little dot on the map in MO, called purdy. i think it sounds like a wonderful little town! i like the small town feel but anyways, we are headed out there to work with a special needs camp. i'm so excited! God's already been proving himself and showing his glory! it's been so wonderful to see! but i'm kinda nervous, cos we're flying, and i've never flown....soooo.... but last summer, i felt really called to "local" missions. just seeing how needy america is for the Gospel. however, i am all for over seas! so we will see what God does with that. how about you? what kind are you involved in?
