It is hard to believe. I am actually still alive and able to enjoy ONE MORE BIRTHDAY! This is truly a gift of grace from the Living God. Had not the divine grace of God intervened during periods of life-threatening dangers through the past, I would certainly not be alive to celebrate this special event.
This is why I take the gift of life God gives to each one of us quite seriously. Before this day is over, there are those who will die and leave this world forever. They are no longer able to affect this world, it's destiny and influence the lives of others in the world today.
We as Christians are called to influence the lives of people around us daily. Whether with our love, prayer, compassion, giving and serving, we are called to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in our world today. And the greatest way to make a difference in today's world, is to abide in the WILL OF GOD. For only His Divine Omniscience knows what can be most effective in reaching out to others and changing lives for His glory.
This is all that I have to live for, the will of God and how to reach out and touch His world with the love of Jesus within me. Nothing else truly matters, but the WILL OF GOD! Jesus declared that HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL PASS AWAY, but HIS WORDS would never pass away. And He declared that whosoever believes in Him and shall do the will of God shall inherit eternal life and live forever. http://bible.cc/matthew/7-21.htm
