What's Your Belief?

Funk & Wagnalls standard dictionary defines god; One of various beings in mythology, primitive religions, concieved of as immortal,  as embodying a particular quality, or having some special powers over some phase of life.  In monotheism God, the  ruler of life and the universe.

If you took a poll of people's opinions about who God is, you would find various answers. Some are atheists who deny or disbelieve in the existence of God. Some are agnostic believing the doctorine and philosophical theory that man cannot know God. They are skepitcal about His existence. Some would have no opinion at all. Out of sight, out of mind. If you asked a secular humanist, their belief would be one of life lived without reference to God at all.

A religious minded person would have various beliefs about God and who He is. They might believe He is a spirtual Santa Claus. Others would define him as angry and judgemental, a real tyrant. A true believer knows him as a loving father, protector, and provider.

The only way to know the truth is through personal experience. Every human who has lived has had to answer this question for themselves. When God created mankind He made us spirit, soul, and body. It is our spirit that longs to know God. Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions. It's that part of our being that decides to know God or deny His existence.

Life without a relationship with the true and living God is a life without real purpose or meaning. Your Heavenly Father, the one who created you, longs for a personal relationship with you. He wants to be part of your life. We all have to answer the question. Who is God? Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Read the Bible, it's the only true authority on who He really is.

I challenge you to seek Him with an open heart and mind. He's waiting to reveal Himself to you. Your life will never be the same.
