What I Believe

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everylasting Father, Prince of Peace."

I believe that the only way to get into Heaven is through Jesus.
John 14:6-7 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

That He died on the cross and rose from the dead 3 days later to save me from eternal death. 
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life."

I believe that I am a sinful woman. My desires and intentions are often unholy, and selfish.
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

I believe in a God that forgives me, and everyone who asks Him to. 
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face; and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land."

I believe in a God that changes people.
2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come,"

I believe in a God that heals.
John 11: 43-44 "When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."

I believe in a God that saves me from death.
John 11:25-26  "Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believe in Me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."

I believe that Christ needs to be at the center of my marriage and the center of my family.
1 Peter 3:7 "In the same way, you husbands use give honor to your wives. Treat her with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God's gift of new life. If you don't treat her as you should,  your prayers will not be heard."

I believe in the Holy Sprit, and I try to listen to Him speak to me.
Romans 8:26
"And in the same way the Spriit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with gratings too deep for words."

I believe in the power of prayer.
Matthew 7:7-8 "Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the sorry will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

I believe in tithing and giving back to God. And I trust He will take care of my needs.
Proverbs 3:9-19 "Honor the Lord with  your wealth and with the best part of everything your land produces. Then He will your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with the finest wine."
