Why I Still Believe

Why I continue to believe in God through Jesus Christ. Why, whatever happens in my life, I entrust myself to God in Jesus Christ. 

“He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. He poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors” (Isaiah 53:3, 5, 12).

“He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth. When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls” (1 Peter 2:22-25).

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (1 John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
