What do I believe? In a nutshell?
- He lived
- He died
- He rose
The He to which I refer is my Big Brother, Jesus the Christ. As His younger sibling, my purpose in life is to share with all who would read or listen, what those three things have meant in my life and how you, too, can experience it.
The scripture says that faith comes by hearing the word, and believing in your heart that Jesus is who He says He is and that His blood shed on the cross was the ultimate sacrifice necessary to accomplish forgiveness of all sin. (Past, present and future).
Hearing and believing alone won’t cut it though. It is necessary to demonstrate your faith by acting, making a conscious decision to choose God. A response, if you will, for His generous grace shown towards us.
How do you to this?
- By acknowledging out loud that you have sinned
- Believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead; and then
- You will be saved!
