Knowing God, Loving Him and serving
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Knowing God, loving Him and Serving Him

Is my only goal in life.

When I was a very small child,

I adopted the faith of my father.

Baptized as an infant,

Making my first communion

and took my Confirmation in

fifth-grade to become a

"Soldier of Christ".

I am His child.

As a Christian, I believe

Christ died for my sins.

I have made many mistakes,

and I am a sinner.  I have

repented and know I am forgiven.

I will stand up for my faith,

even if others judge

or turn against me.

I will stand up and

give witness to Christ

whenever I can.

I love God with

all my mind, heart and soul.

He is always with me,

I am thankful and

give Him praise.

"Know the God of your father, and serve Him

with single mind and willing heart."

(1 Chronicles 28:9)
