Around the age of eleven I accepted Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of the one true God, as my Lord and Saviour.  Some of you have known me since then and before, and some of you have only known me a short while.  To some of you this may have come as a surprise due to the fact that you have never heard my profession, or seen the evidence in my actions.

Today, I want you all to know that I am seeking to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh.  I am not telling you this because I want any kind of “points” with God, or seeking anyone’s approval. I say this because I want to give glory to Jesus my Saviour. The Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2: 8-9).

I also want you to know that God loves each and every one of you, and would have it that all would be saved.  If you have a personal relationship with Jesus as your Saviour, that is awesome.  If you do not know Jesus, or have been struggling with the issue, I urge you to talk to someone or make the choice today.  Time in this world is short and all of the things within are only temporal.
