Bio Hello. My name is Sadie. I am a young Christian woman living in Southern California seeking to follow the Lord Jesus Christ by using the gifts He has given by His Holy Spirit for the edification of His Body, the Church, and for the furtherance of His Kingdom through the teaching of the Word of God and proclamation of the Gospel of Christ. God saved me through a series of events in my life which showed me my exceeding sinfulness and desperate need for a Savior. I am forever grateful to God for my salvation, as I know that it was not by any work of my own but by His mercy and His grace; He sovereignly set His love upon me, even while I was yet dead in trespasses and sins. Now, because Jesus Christ died in my place, bearing all the awesome wrath of God against all of my sin, and paying every bit of the debt I owed to God, although He Himself was perfectly sinless and blameless before God, it is my honor to offer my life back to Him as a living sacrifice, to the praise of His glory and grace. Vision It is my hope that this blog will draw Christians--especially my sisters in the faith--closer to the Lord Jesus Christ by helping them to apply the Scriptures to their lives, and that those who do not yet believe in the Lord Jesus Christ will hear the Gospel, repent of their sins, and come to saving faith. All for God's glory! Statement of Faith I believe in the Doctrines of Grace. I believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-17,II Peter 1:21). I believe there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4,Matthew 28:19,John 10:30). I believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14,Matthew 1:23,Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15,7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3,Ephesians 1:7,Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25,I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11,Revelation 19:11-16). I believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19;5:24,Romans 3:23;5:8-9,Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
I believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29). I believe in the spiritual unity of the believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9,I Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28). I believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14,I Corinthians 3:16,6:19-20,Ephesians 4:30;5:18). I believe that we as Christians are examples of the love of God in this world. It is this (agape) love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians (I John 4:16-17). I believe it is the mandate of the whole Church to go into the whole world and to preach the Gospel to every living creature. (Mark 16:15,Matthew 28:19-20).
