How would you define simple faith in Christ?
My simple answer is that I believe in Jesus – God expressed in human form. I believe that His birth, life, death, and resurrection restored my relationship with God.
Moving beyond the Sunday School answer…because of my faith in Christ, I choose to follow Him, to attempt to live a life submitted to His rule and reign in my life.
At the forefront of this is to love God with my heart, soul, mind, and strength. To be honest, when I consider that even my ability to love Him is dependent on Him first, I cannot really say that I know how to love Him. I still ask Him to teach me how to love Him.
This is what I know about loving God today…
- I can have meaningful times of worship and prayer.
- I can rest in and receive His love.
- I can extend His love to others in both words and action.
