My name is Daniel Diedrich and I am 21 years old. I have lived my life in the wonderful state of Michigan while raised by Godly parents in a solid Christian home. I have six siblings (3 sisters and 3 brothers) and am number six in the order.
I am a Christian because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross of Calvary in taking all of mankind’s sin upon himself so that we can be delivered from a Christ-less eternity in the lake of fire, have a home in heaven, and be restored to that love relationship with God that was marred by the fall if we accept this free gift of salvation. I accepted this free gift of salvation by faith through grace alone at the age of 3 in January of 1997. This was definitely the most important decision I made in my life. I was a lost sinner, but God in love provided that way of deliverance.
Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23 tells us the result of sin in that it says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. ”
But even when the world was in this lost state of helplessness, Romans 5:7-8 shows the amazing love of God in that it says,
“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16
This is the love of God magnified! 🙂
I also have a BSBA in General Management through Thomas Edison State College, most of which was completed with the help of CollegePlus- a fabulous accelerated distance learning program, where you can earn a bachelor’s degree faster and for much less money than the traditional brick-and-mortar, college route.
I desire to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and allow God to use me as a tool to show Christians how that it is of utmost importance to live their lives according to the Word of God in every area with a spirit of love, and stop being conformed to the world (Romans 12:2). If our nation is going to turn back to God, the revival must start with us as believers.
