Feeling Like a Christian

Put Me to the test,” says the Lord of hosts, “See if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need (Malachi 3:10).”

6ITP6J. S. Park, author at The Way Everlasting, gave away half of his income in 2012 to the fight against human trafficking. No, he’s not some wealthy businessman or winner of a state lottery. He’s simply a laborer in the body of Christ desiring to look more like Jesus in a very practical way.

Following J. S. Park on his journey to give away half of his salary has been a heart-searching experience for me and obviously for many others. In the aftermath of this feat, one commenter asks, “How do you feel? What did you learn?”

He responds…

“While I can’t pin it down to one major thing and while it would all sound so cliche  I’d say the overarching lesson that hit me in the head is that God provides. Man, does He provide…

Another strange thing is that I actually started to feel like a Christian for the first time. I know that sounds wrong somehow, and maybe it is: but when I began going all out, the entire theology of Christ made that much more sense. I began to understand a small glimpse of his sacrifice that I could not have learned any other way.”  The article and links to the entire journey can be found here.

    Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

  2. It’s easy to give when one has the ‘means’. But to give sacrificially is an amazing way to live. Thanks so much for this excellent testimony of ‘giving’ and ‘living’ faith.
