It takes the Bible a long time to present Jesus Christ. The Old Testament is a long progression of introducing the Son of God to the world as He is found in every book, becoming more and more real, and the world more and more ready to receive Him, though not all. But when the Light of God opens the eyes of man, his first reaction is to see himself as being full of sin. He sees the devastation he has made of his life, when the Creator had set before Him true existence, yet he chose darkness. Most people, when they see the Son of God, want to be just like Him. Some prefer the dark road, the sinful path that makes man an enemy of God. However, the soul of the man who chooses the Light is then broken up, the whole creation he made of himself goes back into chaos, and the Holy Spirit starts to build him once again, building him into the very image of Jesus Christ.
God’s creation satisfies the Creator, and what the Holy Spirit re-creates in a man satisfies God. It may take time. In fact, the time it takes depends on the surrender of the man. Did he surrender all to the Light? Or did he harbor some darkness on the side? Once the Holy Spirit has been invited in, He never leaves, and eventually all the darkness will leave. How does the Holy Spirit work? By The Word.
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life,” (John 6:63).

Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
