My Creed

7 Aug

There’s  a loving God who created us and this world. My God is not exclusive, he loves us equally and unconditionally. Jesus’ life is a perfect example of true love, mercy and forgiveness and we should all endeavor to become more like Him. There are two parts of the Bible which are equally important and will lend wisdom, comfort, and guidance to its reader. A person’s identity is not in their income, race, sexual preference, nationality or ability. It is instead found in a relationship with God. He above all things, requires us to LOVE one another, even our enemies.

Unfortunately, Christians do a lot to turn people away from God. This makes my heart ache. Somehow, many Christians today get lost in the public denouncement of other’s lives when they should be over flowing with love. It is NOT our jobs to judge another’s choices!! Instead, we should focus on building relationships, community, and helping others.

I hope that if you are a person who has had a negative view of Christianity, you will be encouraged by my Truth. Even further, open a Bible and read for yourself about God’s love for you. I can promise that the deepest part of your soul will resound with joy!

“John 15:9-17 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.”

    I SOOOO agree with this! 100%!! I can’t believe all the judging that many so-called Christians do of people who are different from them. It totally blows my mind!

    I just discovered your blog, Cecilia. Good for you! I like what I’ve read so far! 🙂

      Thanks for your positive comments Candi!! I just have strong convictions in this area, because for a long time, I thought I wasn’t good enough! So nice to hear someone agree with me!
