The Bible says faith without works is dead. Obviously, if you believe the New Testament, you know that good works won’t get you to heaven. Only believing in Jesus Christ and accepting His sacrifice will do that. However, once we have that faith and that salvation, God expects us to do good works—not as some penance, but simply as an outflow of His Holy Spirit within us.
Charity has a sweet six year-old daughter and an equally sweet twelve year-old stepdaughter. I’m not just taking the word of a prejudiced mother about that. I’ve been around and love both of these girls.
Charity’s husband does not have custody of his daughter, which is where the problem arises. In recent months, this twelve year-old girl has begun revealing some real problems in the way she is treated in her mother’s home. She has even talked about suicide as a way of dealing with the problems.
Charity and her husband Ryan have begun the process of seeking custody of the girl, but it’s not an inexpensive procedure. And it couldn’t come at a worse time for them financially. Ryan recently lost his job, and Charity is trying to get a consulting business off the ground.
In order to pay an attorney and court costs, they need to raise $2,500. To a lot of people, that’s not much money, but I’ve been unemployed before, and at times that would have been an un-climbable mountain for me. It is right now for the Kountz family.
Please search your heart and pray about whether God would have you help them out—$10, $50, $100 or whatever. Click this link to make a donation. You just might help save a little girl’s life.
If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
