Lately, I have been thinking, why do I have this website? Is it
because I enjoy laying out the backgrounds, or writing the stories? Is
it because of all the neat interaction items? These things are nice, it
draws some to a site, and I enjoy working on them, but this is not what
keeps me going.
Is it that people will say ”What a great website; you did a great
job!“ That would make me feel good and encourages me when my
page hits are low, but no, the nice comments are not where it’s at.
Is it to sell products and make lots of money? No, that’s not it
either. I not only don’t make money from my site, but it costs me
Is it that I want to make lots of friends and become well known on
the web? Friends are nice, but there is little chance of that happening.
All these things by themselves would be very empty.
Just what is my passion? What keeps me going? There are
scriptures that help to explain how I feel.
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole
world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange
for his soul?
James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from
the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a
multitude of sins.
Just one soul is worth more than the whole world.
My motive for this website is to have one person click on it and find
true born-again salvation, the salvation that will change his or her
whole life by turning them to serve God, and giving them eternal life
“Just one person?“, you may ask. “Many people have a part in
seeing hundreds find truth”. Yes, I would love to see hundreds come
to the truth because of my website. But let me explain how I feel with
There was a man walking along a beach after a
storm. He saw a older man walking ahead of him. As the older man
was walking, he was picking something up and throwing it into the
ocean. When the younger man drew closer, he asked the older man,
“What are you doing?” The elder man replied, “I am throwing these
starfish back into the sea; they will die lying on the beach. The storm
washed them here“. The younger man replied, “ But there are
hundreds of starfish all along the beach. What difference does it make
if you throw a few back into the water?” The older man picked up a
starfish, threw it into the water, and said,” It makes a difference to
One person is important when you are that person!
So I just keep watching and waiting for that hungry person to
come along who will open his or her eyes to see God’s truth.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which
go in thereat:
Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
And now you know what my passion is!
