So what is this blog all about?

I felt like setting up this blog to share with you how awesome our God is and I’ll be posting about what I believe and what I’ve experienced God to mean to me in my life so far.

Well, let us start with some basics. I believe in the one true God, the one portrayed in the Bible. Jonah sums it up nicely:

Jonah 4:2
New International Version (NIV)
… I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. from Bible Gateway

Our loving Father in Heaven is wanting to build a relationship with us here on earth and I think that is such an exciting thing. Some other things I believe in:

  • I believe in the Holy Trinity
  • I believe that Jesus rose from the dead and is seated in heaven interceding for us
  • I believe that Jesus is the only way to receive salvation and eternal life
  • I believe that the bible is filled with the knowledge and wisdom of God and is still valid today

John 1:1-4
New International Version (NIV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. from Bible Gateway

I also believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit can be utilised in the present and they are there to edify, exhort and comfort people (paraphrased from 1 Corinthians 14:3 – NKJV). The NIV version reads:

1 Corinthians 14:3
New International Version (NIV)
But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. from Bible Gateway

In no way am I proclaiming to be something more than just someone who is interested in sharing what I’ve learned and still busy learning. I don’t have all the answers and I don’t believe I’m more important than anyone else either. I just love God and I’m thankful for what He has done for me, so as I have freely received, I also want to freely give back.

Matthew 10:8
New International Version (NIV)
… Freely you have received; freely give. from Bible Gateway

This is also an opportunity for me to thank God and give Him praise for all the things He has done for me.

Thank you for taking the opportunity to read this and as time goes by I’ll elaborate more and more and share with you what I have on my heart.
