Thanks for dropping by! This blog is designed to encourage young women in their walk with Christ. As I walk through this Christian journey, I want my heart to be directed toward Christ and His Kingdom. I hope to be able to share some of what I’ve learned through study, research, and life experience in becoming a young woman seeking Christ-likeness. This blog is written for Christian women. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, scroll down to the “How to Become a Christian” section below.
Let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Lisa. I studied fashion in college, but currently work in IT and love my job. As I studied fashion, I learned more about God’s counter-cultural call to women to dress modestly. This led into much study, reading, writing, and research on Biblical womanhood and femininity. I want to share with you what I’ve learned.
Just for fun, here are a few things I like:
- baking scones
- teddy bears
- tea with friends
- walking and talking
- reading a good book
- and twirly skirts
How To Become a Christian
Romans 3:23 says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” None of us are perfect because we all break God’s law. The penalty for that is death, eternal separation from God, according to Romans 6:23. The verse tells good news, too: “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God loves you and me so much that “He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). “God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
None of us can earn salvation; it is only through faith in Jesus. God doesn’t want anyone to die in their sin, so He made a way for us to live forever with Him by sending His Son Jesus to die on the cross. Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead, conquering the power of sin and making a way for us to fellowship with God.
We do this by confessing our sin to God and trusting in Jesus. 1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Romans 10:9 says “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” It is not by anything we can do that we earn salvation. It is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Salvation is a gift from God: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Salvation is the start of walking with God and directing our hearts to Him and His ways. Today will you confess your sin and believe in Jesus as your Lord through faith for salvation from sin?
