Am I Just Lucky?

I don't believe in predestination in the strict Calvinist sense. But I do sometimes think about how different my life might be if, having no choice in the matter, I had been born in, let's say, Sri Lanka. In a Hindu culture surrounded by poverty. Wow. Each day being simply a matter of survival.

What hope would I have for the future? How could I face each day without Jesus' Spirit living in me?

It's a reminder to me that this precious message we have is not one to be hoarded -- but to be shared.

Amen. I think you have seen the video with Penn of Penn & Teller questioning how much a Christian would have to dislike (or maybe he used the word hate) someone to not share the gospel with them. It convicted me.

I am thankful for what God has given me and hope I will be a good servant in sharing his love with others.
