Believe

What do you believe in? As for me, I am unapologetically a Christian.

I believe in love, pure unconditional love.

I believe in and strive for peace among all people in my life and respect the dignity of every human being.

I believe that there are many sacred and holy divine texts, some we have yet to discover and the Bible, as it was written many many years ago, is the word of God.

I believe in one God, the Alpha and the Omega, Almighty, Father, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God from God, Light from Light, (I love that description.) I believe in the Holy Spirit, the giver of life.

I believe for my sake Jesus was crucified. For my ugly, evil, lowly, dirty, disgusting sin. He was beaten, tortured, hung on a cross for me..on my knees in shame at this thought, head bowed. I believe on the third day he rose again into heaven and he will come again.

I just hope that my meager attempt to serve God, love, praise, and honor Him will reflect His love to the world.

Amen.
