good life with stephanie ryan
Part of cultivating a good life is living in a way that honours Jesus and glorifies His name.
Two weeks ago I celebrated exactly 12 years since I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. As a four year old in a hotel room in Singapore I knew that if I accepted Jesus I would go to heaven when I died and live as a daughter of the King here on earth. Now at 16 I have learned more about His never ending love and His sacrifice on the cross and I am filled with increasing awe.
For anyone to allow their only son to die and save the people they created, people who more often than not choose to ignore them, is a true example of beautiful love. God did that and then even raised Christ back to life, displaying His power over death and sin. This truly declares His greatness!
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
I believe the only thing we can do in response to God’s sacrifice is to accept His free gift of forgiveness and live a life that honours Him. We aren’t required to “do” anything to become God’s children, but just because we love Him, we can try to live a life that honours God and brings glory to His name.
I believe this is living a good life.
