Galatians 3:23-29. (The Message)

Until the time when we were mature enough to respond freely in faith to the living God, we were carefully surrounded and protected by the Mosaic law. The law was like those Greek tutors, with which you are familiar, who escort children to school and protect them from danger or distraction, making sure the children will really get to the place they set out for.
But now you have arrived at your destination: By faith in Christ you are in direct relationship with God. Your baptism in Christ was not just washing you up for a fresh start. It also involved dressing you in an adult faith wardrobe—Christ’s life, the fulfillment of God’s original promise.
In Christ’s family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. Also, since you are Christ’s family, then you are Abraham’s famous “descendant,” heirs according to the covenant promises.


When I read over these verses the first thing that came to my mind was faith. F.A.I.T.H. stands for:

It's believing that you can do anything that you have dreams to do, then going ahead! It is greater works, believing in what God has for you to do. Faith is what God wants you to do. There are no limits-- all in great faith!

After finding the Lord and being baptized later in life, I knew my dream was to do as much as I could. There have been times in my life when faith has brought me through. Always remember that we are no longer by ourselves, we are one family of Christ!

That is why - Forsaking All I Take Him!
