How do you know if God is really real?
Here’s the thing we’ve never seen God. God has spoken to people like Abraham and Moses but it was never face to face. Whereas with Jesus he was brought into this world in flesh. He lived a life in this world; spoke, ate, performed miracles, and then became the greatest man ever existed. But in the mist of all this how do we really know if God is real? Humans were created with the characteristic of wanting to know the truth. If we don’t see it we don’t believe it right? We need proof. But here’s the thing we’ll never know if God really lived SCIENTIFICALLY. But Christians know he is alive by FAITH. Faith knowing that God is above us all, he created this world in 6 days, created each one of us in his perfect image, he knows our next words, the number of hair strands on our head. He knows every star in the sky by name, he has every future of every living being all planned out. It is faith that Abraham had when God told him to sacrifice his son, faith that Daniel had when he was stuck with a huge lion, faith that the blind man had knowing that he sinned but God used his Son to heal and forgive him. How do we know that God exists? By faith and knowing that his Word is true. God used his people to write the Bible and the Bible is the word of Life. Any question, any doubt, in sadness, in happiness, in anger or frustration, everything you need is written in the Bible. God is up there in Heaven watching over you, he loves you, he longs for a relationship with you, and he wants to use you to share his Gospel so that others can be consumed by that same love and joy you feel when you have faith in him. Trust, faith, assurance, love, joy all reasons why God is alive and true.
Happy Friday my beautiful ppl 😍

Christian or not we all know this Bible verse right? “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son…” We all can quotes this verse out of memory. Here’s the thing there’s more to this verse, we only quote the first part because it’s common we hear it all the time, but how about the second part? “…that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” Listen it’s not just being a Christian, not just reading the Bible, praying, going to church every Sunday, it’s not just about being a good person, it’s about belief. Do you believe in Christ? Do you believe that he came into this world, spread love to people, did miracles, preached the gospel, lead a good life, and in the end to forgive your sinfulness he hung on the cross so you don’t have to pay the price? When you believe and trust in him and you summit yourself to him, when you make the decision “God I want to love you, serve you, I want to walk in your ways, I want you to use me for your glory” you will be given Eternal life. Life that never ends, life with no pain, no sorrow, no hate; just pure joy and praise.
"True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less."- C.S. Lewis. I think humility is the most powerful characteristic a person can have. Putting people before yourself is a beautiful thing. It shows love and compassion…something Jesus lead in his lifetime. He was a Jew who helped people; He was a no one, he didn’t have authority, he was just a normal person with spiritual love given from his Father. He did all these amazing miracles yet people despised him and looked at him less. The hate him and they just wanted to get rid of him. In the mist of that Jesus thought less about himself of what he could do and he focused on leading people to the ways his Father in heaven wanted them to live. He had humility. I want to have humility. You should have humility
