Best Practices to Build Your Faith and A Relationship with God
Read the Holy Bible
It is important to start reading the word of God. We are here for one lifetime and when I considered this later on I said, "the least I could do is read the bible and give God the chance." I almost didn't get this chance and God must have made sure I was given the chance as he knew I would have said that, if I died before I had this chance.
The bible may not be easily understood as a beginner from the beginning of the Old Testament to the New Testament, depending on the skill level of the reader. It could be interpreted various way or disregarded as events that are not possible in some cases.
One thing we have to remember, God created the universe and thus us. He is in control of all things and if we can just open our minds and wrap our brains around that concept, it will be easier to understand the truth of the power God has.
Once your faith builds to a level of accepting and loving Jesus and why he is the Son of God, the bible becomes very real and not just a moral or something you take with a grain of salt, but a realization there is nothing our God can't do.
We live in a world where it is mixed with many religions and beliefs and its hard to understand and know what to believe is real... I had to look at other religions to ensure I was not missing something and could properly weigh the truth. I came to some stunning realizations and conclusions, that I would never have understood. I see why the Holy Bible is real and Jesus is the Son of God and the Trinity that makes up the entire function of our Human Perfect God is Jesus. The father is the law in absolute fundamental perfect righteousness... Jesus is the human and perfect Love of us. To say the least, without him, we would be up a creek without a paddle, and that will make more sense as you build your faith if you are not there yet! Give it a chance may I ask you! ;)
Find A Church You May Like
We all say it! I have heard it from others and I can relate to this as I said this my self and thought it. (Imaging our feet catching fire or sparks flying when we enter the threshold line of the church door!)
Gaining the courage to go to church is not easy. It does however get easier and comfort builds the more you go. We are so use to our other life, the sinful one! (if you are not a die hart Christian!) The best part I have to say about discovering the truth, based on the world of God is when you realize the blinders are being removed and no longer do you see the world or view it the way you use to before; that it is actually hard to know how to view it the way you did! And, many people still see it the way you did!! That's when life starts to feel really messed up! For the better of course!
It becomes hard to understand!!! Seriously! So remember, if you didn't know this world and only knew a righteous one, do you thing you could comprehend this world of SIN today? It would be down right ludicrous, and that is in the end why God will reveal you everything we blinded our selves from, how the effects of SIN separated us from God and breaks the law of perfectness.
Does that make some kind of sense? Even if you may be an atheist, if you are? One way or another, what is the truth! You want the truth! And please may I ask, that you may open your mind to at least answer in truth to one argument or another in what is correct. Do you really want to prove your self there is no such thing as a God, that loves you and wants the best for you and a life renewed in perfectness and there is no purpose to this after?
The world is based on Good and Evil! Right? Good or Bad? Does that make more sense? Well one power is the one you want! And, the one that will rule! Do you believe in power? I hope so otherwise, what the heck is going on! What power would you want to rule, if you wanted to have it in your own will, At some level? I think inherently, you would want to come to some truth and be extremely happy there is a such thing as a supreme super GOOD power! (This is why I made this site as it is meant to bring truth in topics so it helps reveal that there is such a thing! Truth!) I hope one day, I hear from some people who never believed in God, even Atheists say, they believe with all their heart! I HUMBLY say I hope I hear this. Not with EGO, not with PRIDE! But from a love from GOD!
I still look at people like they see the world through God as I do and of course most people don't. We were born in blindness by sin, and before blindness this was the world in perfect truth and when it is removed, we can't look at it through the blindness of others, how they see and how we use to be. It is actually strange to tell you the truth! It is truly AWESOME! IT IS LOVE!
Building a relationship with the church people is something to explore. In the end, if you see a lifestyle in the way you use to live that has some distaste to it, a church is a great place to build a stronger direction towards people, that can help you stay away from the things you may have not like before.
I am just going to say... following God is no instant blessing as a permeant cure to this life. Growing to understand his work could well be very much a paradigm. Sometimes we may be tested in a way we could completely want to accuse God for everything wrong in our life, while we may be completely missing what he is wanting us to see and that our miss calculations are a result of executing the truth and thus the HOLY SPIRIT!
Remember we are not perfect like GOD! But that doesn't mean we should be using that as a reason to not be better or the best we can be. Also remember GOD loves us for all our inadequacies as he knew we were going down this path before it happened, even if he meant for us to live a perfect life by making everything good to begin with. He loves us more than any one person could ever. (He doesn't promote us to be or live in a improper life and calls us to live in a life based on his values - there is two differences there)
Look at my story. I am just thankful I was humble all the way, but it didn't mean that it wasn't hurtful inside to see everything happen the way it did, even if I was just being a great person. God just wanted to take that greatness and say hey, you are great, let me show you how you can apply that greatness, where it truly will be rewarding. Key word "HUMBLE" greatness!
Find a good church that doesn't beat around the bush and teaches topics directly relating to the truth and facing SIN. If we are to explore the truth, God and build faith, then we should stand up to our pain, SIN, truth and allow God to grant us the courage to walk the path and open our hearts to his blessing. If it hurts you to listen, because something is penetrating you with a truth you don't necessarily like, and feel it; Embrace it and realize this is a place to grow within you self and that the church you go to is a good church. If it is penetrating and poking you in a way you may not like, trust me, give it time, a chance, and be honest and true to your self and God! You will WIN at life, even if it is hard at times and for a while. Stay on course. It is hard and you may be challenged in ways you never thought possible. Believe and love!
Engage with Church Study Groups or Home Groups
If you remain consistent by going to church most Sundays and are taught by good teachers who are not afraid to teach the truth, then bible study, and home groups will be apart of their church. (Typically Christian) This is a very beautiful time, where you can enjoy elaborating on the blessings of God and learn more in depth the actual events of the bible with your church friends.
This helps you understand more of those questions and how can God be so brutal in the Old Testament? (A big question and rejection by so many people I come across) FYI The world is still very brutal and will be until what fixes it?
We have to remember the world started in these phases. Adam and Eve (A Perfect World) Why would it not come back to that in the end?
Eve breaking Gods trust and Adam blaming God for creating her (Bringing SIN in and a Corrupted Fallen World - Old Testament)
Jesus Born, Death and Resurrection (Into the New Testament and Into the End Times as A Future Prophecy and Gods Plan) The end is going to come, whether it is your life or the universe. It is going to happen! Then what and why, you may ask?
Understand Gods Plan by Reading The Revelation!! So keep reading and engage with this site! I hope this will inspire you to keep building your faith and one day go to church! And perhaps I will get a hello one day from some of you!
This page and my faith is 1.5 years in the making, when I completed this 2022. At this point I feel I could answer just about anyones questions, preach the Gospel confidently, defend the Gospel and God with Truth and I have no fear what so ever about who may fight me on it, reject me or who may not like me.
I love Jesus and my faith has allowed me to see the truth in so many ways from Sunday as the saying goes. I have been able to look at versatile dynamics and reverse analogy to come to the truth that speaks that there is a God and he exists and there is no doubt about that. You will see why I feel that way with my topics I write.
I am opened minded to anyone with questions, opinions, and various levels of thinking, right or wrong, as long as what you are thinking is also up for truth in the matter. All I ask is to keep a sensible manner as I don't believe in censorship, so keep it clean please, you will only make your self look bad if you come out swinging with a bad attitude. Sharing hope or your faith is also very much welcomed!
