I want to blog about the Main Thing. The main thing is Faith and how that changes me and everything.
I blog for my business, and my focus is recruiting. I find a lot of ways to talk about that same thing. I decided to try to do it for faith here. I want to talk about the cross of Christ and what comes from that.
So this is my start, and I hope to keep at it. I hope it can glorify God and help people like me love Him forever.
I came to faith at about age 11 in a Lutheran family that went to church weekly and prayed before meals. I was the first to have faith. It was life changing. Religion did not help me, but faith gave me light for my path and meaning for my life.
I learned a lot, but one thing is I am best before the cross. At the cross I am never low in self esteem as am loved so much. At the cross, I am never proud as Jesus has to die for me, a sinner.
What I Hope to Say About the Main Thing
So here I want to expound on what happened and can happen because of faith which is so much different than religion which I have less interest in.
So that is a big topic and leads me to my past and my present and the future. Welcome to join me here, and I hope it leads you to write your own story.
I am Jim Nelson, and I live in China. I grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota and then was a US Army Officer. In 1991, I moved to China which gives me a very different perspective on the main thing. I work as a recruiter. My permanent home is the Kingdom of Heaven.
