Faith and personal relationship!

​Its about faith and having a personal relationship for me. Jesus is a loving God who has revealed himself and can be known in a personal way. My focus is not on religious rituals or performing good works, but on enjoying a relationship with God and growing to know him better. Not only can you connect with God, you also can know that you are fully accepted and loved by God.

major religions – religious beliefs place an individual on their own, striving for spiritual perfection. 

Faith in Jesus Christ himself, not just in his teachings, is how I experience joy and a meaningful life.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Romans 4:17 …He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were.

 In his life on Earth, Jesus did not identify himself as a prophet pointing to God or as a teacher of enlightenment. Rather, Jesus claimed to be God in human form. He performed miracles, forgave people of their sin and said that anyone who believed in him would have eternal life. He made statements like, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

I regard the Bible as God’s written message to humankind. In addition to being an historical record of Jesus’ life and miracles, the Bible reveals God’s personality, his love and truth, and how one can have a relationship with him.

Psalms 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Each of us get to choose what we believe or practice. It’s called free will. Just know that Jesus is the only one God that wants to have a personal relationship with you and wants you to have everlasting life. 

Whatever your dealing with in your life, the Bible teaches that you can confidently turn to a wise and powerful God who genuinely loves you. I believe that God answers prayer and that my life has a purpose as I live to honor him.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
