Jesus Christ is the most important person in my life. I have a passion for ministry and serving others. I praise God for my salvation and I know that Him and Him alone has saved me…I cannot do anything to gain salvation.
A favorite quote of mine comes from Charles Haddon Spurgeon, “The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.” The simple reality is that faith alone saves and such a faith, saving faith, is itself a gift from God.
I thank the Lord for teaching me the difference between meaningless faith and saving faith, faith that even demons have and faith that produces good works (James 2:14-26). Saving faith gives me the desire to do works pleasing to Him because of, not for my salvation. For only a self-righteous spirit thinks prayers and good deeds saved them.
So what sort of lovely lady am I looking for....wow a truly difficult question.
First and foremost one MUST be a Christian and take their walk with the Lord VERY seriously. The simple fact is if Jesus Christ is not a priority then a relationship with me would never work.

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
~ C. S. Lewis
Scholar, Author, and Apologist
from "Is Theology Poetry?"
“The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.”
~Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)
English preacher & writer
“Conceit is an unusual disease; it makes everyone sick but the one who has it.”
“There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough-a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice-which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.”
― J.C. Ryle

I tend to read a lot of theological books but am interested in expanding into other genres. So if you happen to have any suggestion please let me know :) I admit I've tried to read "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" and have struggled to get through it since a LOT of time is spent describing a scene...just not my cup of tea when it comes to books.
