|UNDERSTANDING GOD'S PLAN FOR YOU
A person without Christ has no resources outside of himself to deal with the problems that smack him in the face every day. But a Christian can handle any problem or frustration by using the resources available to him through Jesus Christ.
A Christian is someone who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But that relationship is not something you are born with, or earn, or buy.
