In the Gospel of Mark Jesus said:
“Have faith in God”
Jesus came to teach us about the kingdom of heaven. More importantly, he gave His life for us as a ransom (Matthew 20:28). He paid the price we owed for our sins so that we could be forgiven (Romans 4:7). In the Gospels Jesus taught about having faith in God. In the letters of Paul he revealed that justification (meaning “just as if I never sinned”) is obtained through faith in Jesus Christ. We need to learn what faith is and how to have faith in God.
So why this blog? There are many Christian websites that explain the gospel clearly such as Got Questions, All About God or Compelling Truth. My hope is that this blog will give you an interest in learning more about having faith in God. If you are seeking truth and want to know more about what the bible teaches I hope these blogs will help. If you already believe I hope this helps you come to trust God more deeply.
Where to start
The existing blogs go right through some of the letters Paul wrote. The blogs appear in date order, so if you want to go through a whole epistle you need to start at the back and work forward. I am working on Ephesians (but the work on this has paused) and the previous series Romans, starts here . You can use the arrows at the bottom of the blog to move on through the posts in order, or there is an index to Romans (others are being developed!). Links to the beginning of other epistles are here: 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians , and 1 & 2 Thessalonians.
If you are a new believer a new area is being developed. It will end up with about 13 posts covering in a real basic way what putting your trust in God is all about.
Anyway hope you find something here that blesses you. If you want to get in touch please use the Contact Me page.
God bless you and give you peace.
