Know God: Who He Is (Cultivate)


This post is brought to us by guest author Kellie Myers.

"Who is God?" Many of us have asked ourselves this question, or may still be asking it. I've been a Christian my whole life. I grew up in a wonderful church, and a Christian home. Going to church and learning about God was the "norm" for me. Throughout the years of my Christian walk, I have experienced some doubts about God in some areas of my life, but there was never a time where I did not believe He was real, or if He actually cared.

Taking Jeanine's class Know God: Who He Is has really opened my eyes that God WAS and IS who He says He is. One thing that really impacted me was hearing about Jesus' 12 disciples and how they died. Many, many years after Jesus was gone, they were STILL convinced that Jesus was who He said He was. They all died painful, painful deaths because they would not deny him. They were convinced! We can try all we want, but we can't move forward without the life source, and that life source is God. Build your life on the foundation of Christ! We must make the choice to believe it

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. Matthew 7: 24-29

The good news is the good news because of what Christ did for us! I encourage each and every one of you to take this class. Once we know who He really is, we can only grow and move forward from there!
