For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:16-21
WELCOME to Graced Acres!
So, what’s this website about?
The main goal of this website is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and testimonials to His abundant Love, Mercy, Grace and Perfect Holiness.
What this is NOT, is a Bible tutorial. I’m far from qualified to teach.
Nor is this a religious website. Following Jesus Christ isn’t a religion, it’s a personal relationship. He offers this to anyone.
Although I can speak fluent jibber-jabber, I’m still learning Christianese, so you won’t find poetic dissertations delivered in fluent Christianese. Some days I have difficulty with English. 🙂
Negative on the political realm too.
No thanks on the labels as well. This isn’t a Hebrew roots or Torah observant website. Again, I don’t know enough to teach anything. I do, however, believe in ALL of the Bible; and that includes the Torah. I’m always open to learn more, and I’m not too proud to accept correction.
A follower of Jesus Christ is what I am. I desire to serve the One who created the universe and the One who died on the cross to save my soul from eternal damnation. This website is one small way of serving Him. We all have unique experiences, gifts, insight and therefore unique testimonies. My experience and insight may not be your cup of tea and that’s okay. Some puzzle pieces are more irregular than others, but they fit nonetheless! 🙂
So, this website is all about Victory in Jesus Christ. Just a friendly warning though; there’s some not-so-pretty stuff concerning this particular personal walk; and that’s okay too. Nobody is too far gone for Jesus…it is never too late to turn your life over to Him.
Following Jesus Christ isn’t easy for everyone, but the rewards are beyond measure. My desire is to encourage & edify, but also warn others about the dangers of following the deceptive teachings of man that lead to the broad paths of destruction. God has brought me through a painful, hopeless and dark wilderness; to shine His light and God-willing, help others in the process.
So, in summary; this is part testimony, part commentary. You’ll find sprinklings of admonishment, but it’s not to shame or condemn myself or anyone else. Neither is this a vain act of self-deprecation; it is instead, ALL for HIS GLORY.
For in my weakness, HE IS MADE STRONG.
However, Jesus has given a command for His followers:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20.
My other topics to share may include gardening, homesteading, art and food.
Speaking of food, here’s a super simple recipe that a friend in Christ shared with me:
Confess your sin.
Read your Bible.
Obey your Bible.
Like it’s author, this website is an imperfect, continuous work and reworking in progress, so please check back from time to time for updates. Thanks for visiting!
