My God is…

Join me as I take a journey through the Bible to find God’s identity through His own words and the words of those who knew Him best. I don’t claim to be an expert on theology or religion in general, but I can do pretty good research, and hopefully this will be an enlightening journey. I hope to find out a bit more about who I am in the process (maybe – God willing, you will too).

About the author..

My name is Jill Richard. I’ve been a Christian all my life, and I want to know my Lord better. Each day is an opportunity for me to see Him in Scripture, the world and my family. I Love the Lord above all things, but don’t think that makes me easy on Him. What’s the saying? We always hurt the one’s we love. I know that I’m a sinner and that I get things wrong sometimes (read a lot). That is why I depend on Him for my salvation. I want to know Him more, and like any relationship, my relationship with the Lord takes work. I work on improving myself (not so He’ll love me more or will be willing to let me into heaven as a result), so that I can be a good reflection to those around me of all He has done for me. I work on communicating with Him through prayer and reading Scripture. I’m certainly not going to pretend I do that everyday, but the kind of relationship I want with my Lord is a commitment based relationship. He’ll never give up on me.

    Please show me in Scripture where it says you are still a sinner after you come to Jesus and get born again. Thank you.

      Eric,

      Thank you so much for reading my blog. I guess the verse that probably says that to me the most is (assuming you believe Paul is a born again believer when he writes Romans) Romans 7:15-24 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[a] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

      21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?

      I think this coupled with my belief that the Lord Jesus has saved me from my sins, yet I know I’m still not perfect (ie – not always perfectly nice to my spouse or children, I continue too in fighting temptations to overeat, be lazy and many others I suppose.) I’m not interested in getting into a big theological debate here, but I did want to respectfully answer your question, though I imagine from the way you stated your comment that you already have an opinion on this matter. We may not agree, but the Good News is that God loves us and has died to wash away our sins. God is good.

    I LOVE the idea of your website! I have literally been wanting to do this same thing but in a bible study. I’m just lazy. Anywho, God brought me here a week ago and I was so excited. It’s amazing how well God knows his children. Thanks for doing this. It’s great! 💗

      Thank you for taking time to read my blog. I would like to encourage you to write that Bible study. You don’t want to let laziness or fear to stop you from getting to experience the blessings God has in store for you! I have done that too often and pray I will not do it anymore.

    Thank you for your Blog. I am an elderly man and I am not able to share what I am going through but your blogs have been a tremendous encouragement to me. I have read through every one of them. Some obviously have been more relevant but all have been helpful. Thank you for your faith and willingness to write to bless others. I am struggling so much and have so little time left but I do believe our God is a great and mighty God. That is why I wanted you to know that your blogs have and are touching lives. God bless.

      Brian,

      Thank you so much for your comments. It means so much to me that anything I wrote would have been of value to you. Though I am I am sure it was truly the scriptures in my post that did the most – they never come back void. Praise God that your faith remains through difficult times. He provides us with hope when there seems to be no earthly reason for it. It is my fervent prayer that I will be an encouragement to people and so your comments truly are an encouragement to me as well.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment and encourage! I praise God for you!

      Jill
