What do you have to do to be forgiven by God of your sins?

This is a great question and is the start of any person’s walk with God. You cannot earn God’s forgiveness. You just have to ask. There are a few steps. Admit you are a sinner Believe Jesus Christ, God’s only Son died and rose for you. He took the penalty for your sins Accept Jesus into your heart as Savior Now I know I made this sound really simple. The action in and of itself is but getting there can be difficult. 1: Admit you are a sinner. All of us are sinners. In Romans 4:23 it says: “For all…

How should I respond when someone picks a fight about religion?

The best way to respond to an argumentative friend, especially when it comes to your faith, it to give the most unlikely, unexpected response:  LOVE and RESPECT.  You can practically do this, through: responding with gentle words keeping a respectful tone showing loving actions commit to private prayer Jesus commands us to love God and love others: Matthew 22:36-40 36“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second…

Is it okay that I am very comfortable with being the weaker partner…

I was taught that women were meant to control men, and that men were not really smart enough to be the head of the house. When…

My relationship with my mom isn’t bad, but I don’t feel like I know her.  How can I get to know her better? This is such a hope-filled question.  Truly, it is a blessing to experience a peace-filled relationship with mom.  However, it can hurt right down to the core to feel like you don’t know her either.  For some reason, when someone holds themselves back from us, it always feels like that must be because there is something wrong with “me” instead of “them.”  Usually, however, it is just the opposite.  When a mom or friend guards her heart…

How far physically are we allowed to go?

How far physically are we allowed to go?   I remember this was the first thing I wanted to know after becoming saved. I wanted my next relationship to be right in God’s eyes. I began by using the concordance in my new Bible to find some answers, but none seemed to give me a clear direction. I could find verses about sex, but what about kissing? Holding hands?
