The term soap box, is an old-fashioned term used to describe someone when they are expounding on a subject, usually political in nature. I use the term here, not because I want to talk politics, but because I want to share with you what I believe is the most important thing in life.
I am very passionate about soap making, it is my favorite craft, my business, my very enjoyable creative outlet... but I am even more passionate about my relationship with Jesus Christ. No, I am NOT talking about religion. Religion man's way of thinking he can make himself good enough for God and that, is simply not how it works.
These are the words of Jesus...
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." ---John 10:10, NKJV
The truth is, we were all born in our sins and in need of the Savior. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of all mankind, so that we can enter into a relationship with God by accepting God's free gift of salvation simply by turning from our sins and turning to God, accepting His free gift of salvation.
On one hand, you have God, continually reaching out to us all with His free gift of salvation. On the other hand there is the devil, who does everything in his power to keep people from coming to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. God loves us and wants to fulfill us. The devil continually seeks to destroy us. That's pretty much it.
Please consider the words of Jesus. Consider how God is reaching out to you right now, even as you read these words. His offer is there, the gift of salvation. Accept Him and you will begin to discover how God really can fulfill your very life.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." ---John 3:16-17 NKJV
