A Journey of Faith in Christ
About the Book
Before He entered my world and transformed it miraculously, I went about my days giving no thought to my Maker. I was a high school art teacher back then. While I worked hard to impact my students and school for good, I also enjoyed weekend happy hours and a pot habit. On a couple of occasions just before I came to know the Lord, I could easily have killed myself or someone else driving drunk. This was a warning from God that my life was about to change drastically.
No one evangelized me. I had warning dreams. One seared the image of a brightly lit cross and crown into my mind’s eye. In another, my friend warned me I would come to know the love of Christ. I thought to myself, “But, I’m not religious.” Nevertheless, by the Holy Spirit’s leading and touch, my heart was awakened to realize I love Jesus for some reason, deeply. Thus began my journey learning who He is, in love and in justice.
Proverbs 4:23 states, Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. The question concluding this book and reflection on faith is this: How do you choose to spend your heart in all the limits that shape life? What does my love speak of life and how do I spend my love? I know that God’s love spoke eternal life over me, a sinner, and He spent all His love on man’s salvation. He purchased such grace in the ultimate sacrifice. Now, how will I purchase Him, my treasure? How do I spend all I have buying my field?
