Dear Mr. Wellman,
first I’d like to thank you for all the wonderful articles that you write. I love reading them. I’ve been alone, (worldly wise), for most of my life. (I’m 52) Jesus has always been with me. My friend, my Lord. I know His story and how He never planned for life to be this way for His creatures. Whenever asked how I am I always say “I’m waitin’ on the Lord”
I have a question for you if you don’t mind, I know that you can find any help for ones life in Gods Word, but I never know where to look. Whenever I read His Word I always ask the Holy Spirit for guidance but if you could give this lonely woman some pointers of where to read I would be so grateful. God bless you and thank you in advance…………… Kathy

Hello Mrs. Bentley, I am glad you wish to know more about God’s Word and where to begin. For me, personally, the Gospel of John is where I began to read the Bible and then I went to Genesis, then back to the gospels..so it is really up to you. Perhaps you could have a Bible reading plan as we have created an article with just that in mind at this link: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/where-is-the-best-place-to-start-reading-the-bible-for-a-new-christian/ I hope I have helped. May God bless your study in the Word.

Hello Kathy,

I saw your comment and wanted to offer my point of view as well for reading the Bible. I know you have been a believer for quite some time, but I believe you might find an article that I wrote helpful as well. I think you will see that my brother Jack and I offer almost the same advice. No coincidence there! Blessings to you: http://www.christianityeveryday.com/index.php/the-bible-where-should-you-begin-to-read/

I have to say, I’ve been reading here a while but never posted a comment. I believe this is called “lurking”. 🙂
But I read this blog through tears I’m still wiping away. Peace with God…. Peace with God! And the peace OF God! I’m 57 and didn’t have a ‘road to Damascus’ conversion experience. It was long ago and crept up on me. But right there in the midst of my cosmic high treason against the Most High (SIN), He saved me!! It was like He said, Light be! voilà, Isaiah 9:2 and 2 Cor 9:6! Who is a God like Him? 🙂

As I read I was reminded again of one of my favorite passages, because it upholds the holiness and justice of God, and displays ‘the great love with which He loved us’. I hope you don’t mind that I put it here (from the ESV)–

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe
For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins.
It was to show His righteousness at the present time, so that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. (Rom 3:21-26)

Just AND the Justifier! God’s righteousness upheld by the only one who could have done it– God. The debt I incurred for my treason was paid by Christ in a way I know I cannot truly fathom, yet for which I am so thankful.

Who is a God like Him, abounding in mercy and lovingkindness to all who put their trust in Him?

Thank you, Jack, for writing this article that God used to fill my heart with praise. It’s gonna be easy to do the dishes tonight. 😉

Hello Kay. God’s grace is infinitely amazing. I cannot receive any credit, for anything that I do was from God my Lord (1 Cor 4:7), and without Him, I am nothing (John 15:5), so all glory, all glory to the Holy, Holy, Holy God. See you in the Kingdom Kay!!
