Why Jesus Came

Why Jesus Came

Ge 5:22 NIV       “Enoch walked with God 300 years.”

Life is a journey with a definite beginning and end. And if you’re wise you’ll do what Enoch did for 300 years—he walked with God. Can you imagine how well you’d know God after spending all those years with Him? There’s nothing dull or boring about walking with God. The Psalmist says, “You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence” (Ps 16:11 NIV). God made you for Himself, and only when you discover His purpose for your life will you find peace and joy. If you were to take a fish out of the ocean and place it on the beach, you’d see its scales dry up as it gasped for breath. Is that fish happy? No. If you covered it with a mountain of cash, would it be happy? No. Would an iPad, a good book, and a cool drink make it happy? No. Would a new wardrobe? No. Only one thing will make it happy: putting it back in the water. That fish will never be happy on the beach because it wasn’t made for the beach. It was made for the ocean, in the same way you were made for fellowship with God. You’ll always feel like a fish out of water—never knowing peace and joy—until you find Him. And the good news is He’s as close to you as a prayer. Once you ask Him into your heart you’ll never feel empty again. Do you know why Jesus came that first Christmas? He tells us: “So that [you] may have the full measure of my joy within” (Jn 17:13 NIV).

Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use
WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get
advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

At this time it sounds like BlogEngine is the best blogging platform
out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what
you are using on your blog?
