How My Faith Defines Who I Am
Faith: having a strong belief in a religion, or an even stronger belief in a God. I personally believe in God the Father, and that he created each and every one of us in his own image. I believe that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sin and brought us new life through his death and resurrection. In my faith I stand as a Catholic, which means I believe in only one God. However, God is three persons, also known as the Holy Trinity, meaning there is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In addition, as a Catholic I believe that Adam and Eve disobeyed God leaving every baby born with original sin. From experience, I have been cleansed of my original sin through a process called Baptism. Baptism was the moment

God plays a very important role in my everyday life ever since day one. I personally believe that he is continuously trying to get through to me. For example, God is always putting obstacles in my life to see if I am strong, or tough enough to get through them. However, some obstacles are tougher than others, some seem impossible, and others I find the solution within no time. God does all of this out of love, which also is a powerful word in my life. God died and rose again because of his love for us. So, what better way to repay him than spreading that love with others? In my everyday life I try and love everyone with the compassion God would want me to. Spreading this love is one act of being a follower of Jesus. I strive each and every day to make myself a better me, to be who I was meant to be, the image that God created me to be. God has a plan for each of us, and sure we are going to mess up, I have more than once but that’s the most incredible thing. No matter how many times I have messed up and thought there was no going back, God was there for me in prayer with wide arms just waiting for me to come back to him. Also, God says to love your enemies. Loving my enemies is something I really struggle with but, I know that this is God shaping me into the best me, I learn that God forgives all of our sins, so why can’t I forgive my enemies? This is part of being a follower of Jesus, this is the obstacle that’s being put in my way, now it’s my turn to face

    There are many people who glorify Christ because of His sacrifice on the cross, but there are some people that think that God is guilty of demanding and accepting a very expensive price of Christ's sacrifice. In John 3:16 says that “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The scripture shows us that God wants to save the human, so God send His son to replace us. God save us the sinners because of His love for us and His…

    O’Collins’ book Christology, O’Collins points out that divine love must be understood in the biblical stories of salvation. O’Collins provides multiple excerpts from the Bible but one passage from the letter to the Romans is the most compelling. It reads, “But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). In order to prove God has divine love for us, we must look to what evidence there is to support that God loves us. Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven.…
