My name is Tiffany. I love my Father in Heaven, my family, and the local and global Church. Jesus grabbed my heart once and for all in the fall of 2005 while I was attending Bible College. I had enrolled in Bible College a “New Age Christian” (or so I called myself). I wanted to learn about the Bible so that I could show from an informed stance why I felt bible-believing Christians were wrong about the life and teachings of Jesus. However, in the second week of the Gospel of John class, I realized I was the one in a box, enslaved to sin and in need of a Savior. In repentance and faith, I was liberated from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God’s beloved Son – Jesus Christ. (Col. 1:13-14)
Since that day in the fall of 2005, from time to time I forget who God declared me to be – a righteous daughter of the King, with all its joys and benefits, in Jesus, solely based off of what He has done for me. I have learned through God’s word, and through knowing others and being known in my local church, that I need to gospel myself daily to remember who He has already declared me to be, and who He is continually making me.
The title of this site comes from Romans 4:13-25
“For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. For the law brings wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression. That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, as it is written, ‘I have made you the father of many nations’—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.
In hope he believed against hope, that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been told, ‘So shall your offspring be.’ He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was as good as dead (since he was about a hundred years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb. No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. That is why his faith was ‘counted to him as righteousness.’
But the words ‘it was counted to him’ were not written for his sake alone, but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.”
