Write Your Story On My Heart

Have you ever listened to the hit Christian songs Write Your Story? (If you haven’t, look it up, it’s awesome.)  Do you ever wonder where it came from? I’m here to answer that question in my post today.

You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

-2 Corinthians 3:3 New International Version (NIV)
We represent God and His Kingdom in all we do. We want to represent His Kingdom well, right? That’s the reason why we dress modestly, show respect, practice kindness, do generous things. Our story is engraved in our hearts with the Holy Spirit. We want our story to represent God, not this world.
If we represented the world, then we’d be representing Satan! Does that sound crazy? If it does, here’s a verse straight from the Bible to support that.
Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
-2 Corinthians 4:4 New Living Translation (NLT)
The worldly despise wisdom and responsibility. Instead, they love the things of this world, rather than the Creator of those things.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
-1 John 2:15-17

Hello from China and Consciences!

        Greetings! I’m Enni, one of the authors here at Standing Firm in my Faith. Currently, I am in China visiting my relatives for Chinese New Year’s – it lasts fifteen days. 😉 It is extremely superior to our American New Year – like, seriously?

         Today I want to share with you a verse that I learned in a Christian Study group I’m in called B.R.I.G.H.T. Lights. It was what we memorized last month, so hopefully, it should be pretty fresh in my brain.

          Acts 24:16: And herein do I exercise myself to have always a conscience void of offense toward God and toward men. KJV.

        Now, I bet we all say that we’ve already confessed that sin, or that it wasn’t that important, so you can just let it pass. But, such things like that build up you know, and before you know it, you’re enveloped in sin so heavy, you can’t lift it. What do you do then?

          Well, you have to confess all of them to God wholeheartedly, and even to other people. It might feel strange since it was that long ago – the person probably forgot already! Why should you bring it up? But, that’s the only way to maintain a good relationship with God, as well as with other people.

         What if you can’t even remember any sins? Start with the ones you do remember, and build from there. If you can’t remember any, you have the serious problem of a dead conscience. That’s when you’re so built up in sin, that you don’t even care if you lie or something like that – it’s almost impossible to be cured.

       Strive to keep a clear conscience, and if you really don’t know how you’ve offended people, pray! Pray to God to ask Him if you have offended anyone, and pray for courage for you to apologize to them.

       This is a story my mom told me regarding the lesson, and honestly, it’s quite amazing, so of course, I have to share it!

         My mom was preparing for a huge English test, and her classmate was going to take one after her. This classmate didn’t have much she could study from, and therefore, she asked my mom if she could pick up a few English-Chinese cassette tapes for her, sending 10 yuan as well, about 1.58 US dollars. Now, my mom was feeling highly stressed and weird, so she didn’t get the cassette tapes and wrote back saying, “Haha, I didn’t get you the tapes.” Later, she repented of what she did but she thought it would feel so weird and embarrassing – she just couldn’t do it! So, for ten years, she never apologized.

        However, when she got saved many years later, she learned about repenting your sins, and even though it felt so incredibly awkward, she wrote to the friend apologizing, sending a bunch of gospel cassette tapes as well. Do you know what she replied back? She wrote that of course she forgave her – that it was a long time ago and that it wasn’t a problem at all. She also said that she loved the tapes and that she listened to them all the time. That friend had become a Christian, and even served partime at her church!

       Isn’t that an amazing story? I’ll post more about forgiveness next time – but for now, Au Revoir!
