3/17/07 - "God believes in you" says insearchoftruth.org
I have been considering closing this blog down due to my need to focus on another ministry I am involved with. But while browsing the Internet tonight for some ideas for an article I'm composing, I found this doozy of a "Did You Hear What You Said?" entry. I don't know who the author is. I looked around the web site and couldn't identify him/her. All the more to the good, because I believe that someday, if "insearchoftruth" ever actually finds it (the truth), he/she will be very embarrassed by the statements I've copied here.

The God Who Hopes
Most people expect Christians to have hope in God and His promises. The hope that follows faith and commitment to Jesus Christ is indeed a powerful blessing beyond exchange (Hebrews 6:15-20). But, did you know that God has hope in you? He is an optimistic God, who believes in you!

There is one who would accuse us, but his ultimate aim is to accuse our Father (Revelation 12:10). Our God has exhibited great confidence in us. Let us not fail Him. Rather, let us "walk worthily" of His investment and of Him, since He has given us all things, even His own Son, so that we may be reconciled to Him. By sacrificing Jesus on our behalf, He as already demonstrated His belief in us. Will you reciprocate His optimism, confidence, and love by believing in Him?
SO LET ME ASK YOU, "INSEARCHOFTRUTH", DID YOU HEAR WHAT YOU SAID? DID YOU REALLY MEAN TO SAY THAT?

John 2:24-25 (KJV) 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
