What beliefs really matter to me

February 10th, 2016

Often I am asked what I believe on a particular belief or doctrine. Sometimes people are studying that topic at the time or at other times they want to know where I stand on an issue.

The most important things for me as a Christian revolves around Christ – who He is, what He has done and what He is going to do in the future.

  1. Who He is – Jesus is the Son of God, He is my Saviour and my King. I want to know Him and make Him known. I want to walk in His ways and help others to do the same.
  2. What He has done – He came into the world to show us what God is like, how we should live our lives and He died on the cross to pay the price for our sin. We can find forgiveness and salvation through Him.
  3. What He is going to do – Jesus was risen and returned to heaven. He is coming back for His own people. He will one day call time on this world and we will spend eternity with Him.

To me all other teaching about heaven and hell, old earth or young earth, rapture or no rapture don’t worry rate as highly with me. They are important, but not as important to me.

For me it is about trusting Christ for my salvation, trying to walk in His ways, loving and serving those around me and helping others to follow Jesus too.

I trust that God has it all under control and He knows the when, where and how things are going to happen. I am just happy to know I will spend eternity with Him because I trust Christ for my salvation.

God Bless,
Dave
