I believe that Jesus Christ is uniquely the son of God who lived on earth as a perfect, sinless man and died an unjust death in place of the death that we all deserve for choosing not to love or believe in God. Sounds like I’m just repeating something somebody else said, but no that’s what I really believe. This belief is something that I am working out every day trying to figure out how to believe in God and find God and God’s grace in this unbelievably complex adventure called life.
The following quotes from the Bible all talk about or demonstrate what it means to be alive. I have never felt more alive than when I am completely and utterly dependent on God.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
