I write because I have been called to testify the good news of the grace of God, that the gift of eternal life is available for all through Jesus.
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God (Act 20:24) . For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men (Tit 2:11).
I write to present God as He is, and not the stuff of some twisted folklore. A God who justifies (defends) the ungodly (unrighteous) and credits righteousness without slogging for good works.
Rom 4:5&6 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
I write because Christ is the beginning of the greatest adventure that a person can walk into, there is no greater thrill that one can experience. Life in Christ is beyond adrenaline or dopamine, it is the pinnacle of ecstasy, for life in Jesus transcends tangibly every other known high that humanity has ever experienced.
1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Tit 1:2&3 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
Ezekiel 37: The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, and caused me to pass by them around about: and, behold, there were many in the open valley; and lo, they were very dryAnd he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.Thus saith the LORD GOD unto these bones; behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.
