My Religious Belief

I am a Christian and I believe in the Holy trinity: God, the Son, the Holy Spirit.
• God is the most high God, all-powerful, all-knowing, the creator, full of unfailing love and truth, God is the only “true” God. He is the light.
• Jesus is the son of God, he is God in the flesh, he came into this world for two purposes, to teach us how to live on earth and because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, Jesus. Jesus died on cross for our sins, and is sitting at God’s right hand today.
• The Holy Spirit is the spirit of love that dwells in each and every last one of us, it is not a part of the body so if the body dies, the spirit will continue to live. Because love never dies.
All three, God, the son, and the Holy Spirit are one, which is love. A Christian’s core belief system basically boils down to what’s in the heart and in the heart should be nothing but love. Unfortunately, our heart’s isn’t naturally overflowing with the love. The heart takes time to blossom because as humans, we really don’t know what true love is, we only know the love the world has taught us and that love is selfish/ false. We learn true love when we build a loving relationship with God and that requires a lot of patience, faith, time and God’s help.
At any time in our lives, we can have a loving relationship with God. Many people choose not to accept God because they are walking in the dark, which is why we say God is the light. The people who are in the dark is brainwashed by the sin of this world and can’t see truth (light). Nonetheless, God wants us to come to him as we are, right now today, not when we are rich or when we think our lives is finally in order so now we can give him our attention. God wants our attention right now. God said that if we take one step, he will take two. He said this to encourage our relationship with him and to reinforce the fact that he loves us and will never turn his back on us, even if we are living in sin.
However, in order for us to truly have a relationship with God (take the first step); we must first accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We have to accept Christ as our Savior...
