A bit about my faith.
Sunday after Sunday I sat in the pews of a small church, each time wearing my nicest attire.
At a young age, I learned about the love of our omnipotent God. I believed in God and what Jesus did.
But I never knew him.
I was the girl in school, even-tempered and sweet, who'd show kindness to friends. My motivation was my conscience. It was the good thing to do, showing love to the lovable. I thought I knew what love was.
Now I know the fullness of God's unconditional love.
In Mark 1:15b Jesus said, “'Repent and believe the good news!'” The problem is, many people think salvation is based on belief alone. James 2:19 proves that belief in God is not enough. There it says, “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”
Believing in God is not enough. You must repent and believe, just as Mark 1:15 states. I was twelve years old when Jesus saved me. By that time in my life, my mind was already filled with stories of him. Like I said, I knew about him, but I never knew him. When I surrendered my life though, God began to change me. I became a Christian when I surrendered my life in repentance. To this day, I repent. It's a constant surrendering and continual pursuit of God and his will. I am a Christian, and you will see it is evident by the fruit in my life.
What about you? I hope you are thriving in a relationship with our loving Father. If not, I'm convinced you didn't stumble upon this page by chance. I pray you would know the fullness of God's unconditional love. You will spend a lifetime and eternity enjoying him!
If you want to begin a new life, then
Repent and Believe
1) Ask God to forgive you, and repent of your sinful life, ("repent" means to "turn away from"). Yes, it's hard! This is why you commit your life to God and ask him to change you. He will do the transformation in your life each day as you choose him. You choose him by intentionally pursuing him when you read the Bible and by praying to him.
2) Believe in Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross. Believe his blood was poured out for the forgiveness of your sins. Believe his sacrifice was enough.
