Day 17: Religious or Political views
I choose Religious and below they are;
God is real.
I am a firm believer that God is there. He exists as the Father , Son and Holy Spirit. I believe God is all powerful, all sufficient and is everywhere. He is my present help in time of need. I also believe in the Bible as His written word and I read it daily.
Salvation Is necessary for a Christian.
I also believed in my heart and confessed with my mouth that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I received Salvation. I surrendered fully my life to Jesus Christ.
God is the creator of the Universe.
I believe God created everything on earth and in the heavens as written in Genesis 1. I do not subscribe to other theories of Creation.
He is LORD over all the earth and everything therein. He owns everything as written in Psalm 24:1. Man is just a steward.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most important events in Christian history.
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. He is God’s Beloved son who came on earth to reconcile man to God He died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins and redemption of man. He was burried, and on the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven and He will come again to judge the living and the dead. “Because Jesus Christ lives, I can face tomorrow” this statement is true.
We have a helper in our life journey and He is the Holy Spirit.
He lives in us. We receive Him at the point of receiving Salvation. He brings to rememberance everything God says. He gives us good gifts and bears good fruits in our lives as written in Galatians 5:22-23 through us for the whole church. I so much try to listen to the Holy Spirit as regards direction in my life.
Man was created for a purpose.
God ended the creation process with man and clearly stated that man is to have Dominion or authority on Earth as clearly elaborated in Genesis 1:26-30. This means man is the steward of the earth and has to submit to the authority of The Lord God Almighty.
Carrying a stewardship mindset helps me to live and do life faithfully, it makes generosity and leadership here on Earth easy. It has also helped me to avoid addictions to any things because I ought to have Dominion over them(eg. drugs,media, undesirable habits) and not vice versa.
Love is our nature.
God’s nature is love and since we are created in His own Image, we are designed to love. It was because of love that God sent His only son to die for our sins so that we are reconciled back to him after the fall of man. All through God continues to demonstrate His love for mankind. Even Jesus Christ stated that it’s the greater commandment as written in Matthew 22:36-40.
Personally, love is one of my core values as I run my life race. I believe love should be the basis for all our Relationships.
My faith is anchored in Christ Jesus. And because He lives, I am assured of my destiny. My body is a Disease Free Zone, I am an Economic Power house and none of my loved ones shall die without knowing God. This is all because God is my father, healer and Shepherd. I am a heir in His Kingdom and filled with the Holy Spirit. Amen
I am the Lioness Arising!
