Galatians 3:28 states there is no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female, as all are one in Jesus Christ. God’s grace is the free gift of salvation. Our faith grows as we are open to Christ’s love and accept Him as our Savior. We are grafted back into God’s family tree as children of God and children of Abraham. Others may think our decision is crazy. Why would anyone believe in something which is not seen or proven? It may seem absurd to some, yet we believe it to be the truth. It is in our daily lives, the good days and the bad days, that our faith in God grows. Describe your faith life of believing in God.
