So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Galatians 3:24

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Philemon 1:6

9/24/10    Demas,    about 40
I flagged down a man on a bicycle (Demas) and asked what he believes about life after death. He is Catholic but unsure about what will happen to him. He believes in the Bible, in Jesus the Son of God, in God's holy standard of perfection and his own sin. He believes that when Jesus died on the cross He saved us from the devil. I asked what he would say if a person came up to him and asked him how one can be sure of heaven. He thought long on this and answered, "read the Bible". He had a simple, childlike faith and humility that seemed to come naturally to him. Like a person who knows little about nutrition but benefits from food, Demas doesn't understand much in terms of theology but does believe in Jesus. I spent some time explaining the details more clearly, and believe he understood and received it all graciously, but in the end I believe he will return to that simple, childlike faith. "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3
