Top Ten Things Christians Believe About God

This list gives you reasons why God is imperative to today's living. Everyone needs him to survive in today's world.
The Top Ten
1 God will give you fullness in your spirit

A. God gives you a full, bountiful life based on the riches that He has promised all of us so that the Holy Ghost can enter into your internal being.

A. {Ephesians 3:16} - "That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man."

B. If you are confident and strong, God will give you courage greater than a mighty lion, but you must have faith in Him.

B. {Psalms 31:24} - "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord."

2 God will give you purpose

A. Don't jump to conclusions and go around creating folly. However, you must follow the law of God. By following the will of God, you will gain true purpose for your life instead of wandering around like a dog chasing his tail.

A. {Ecclesiastes 12:13}-Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

B. In your prayers, you need to ask God to forgive you of your sins and make your heart anew. As you become closer in your relationship with the Lord, he will acknowledge you as his child, just like a father on earth can also acknowledge a son or daughter.

B. {Psalms 51:10-12}-Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore in me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with thy free spirit.

C. If you are living in vain not caring about your purpose, God will remove his purpose from you. We are put on this Earth for God's purpose, not our own, so we must have meaning as we live.

C. {Job 33:17}-That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

D. {2 Corinthians 9:7}-Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give. Not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.

3 God loves you!

Sweeping generalizations about what any one religion believes are impossible.

But this one is an exception in Christianity. It's by far the one I believe the most strongly.

A. God loved all of us humans so much that He sent His son, Jesus (His only son), because the sins of the world had gotten so bad that He was about to destroy us all. But He gave us another chance as Jesus absorbed all of our sins from that point on. God asked us to trust and believe, and He would give us everlasting life for the pardon of our sins.

A. {John 3:16} - For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

B. Don't ever feel as though you are so tired and have no peace of mind. God will give you that peace and rest that you are looking for, but all you have to do is have faith to believe.

B. {Matthew 11:28} - Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

C. God loves you so much that He would give you a second chance by sending His son Jesus Christ.

C. {Romans 5:8} - But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

4 God will give you wisdom and understanding

A. If you are not that wise or intelligent, ask God to help you. All you have to do is surrender to Him, and you must be obedient.

A. {James 1:5}-If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not and it shall be given him.

B. The Lord will make you wise. He will breathe on you knowledge and understanding. He stores up wisdom for those who entrust in Him and are obedient. He is awesome to those of you who are sanctified and have the Holy Ghost. God is in control of chastising us because of our sin, and if you trust in Him, He will protect your steps. If you understand all of this, then you know that you have to be faithful, fruitful, and you must praise Him. Again, He will protect you to and fro.

B. {Proverbs 2:6-9}-For the Lord gives wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keeps the paths of judgment, and preserves the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity. Yea, every good path.

C. Through Huram's observation, he understood that God blessed David with an intelligent son that was endowed with discernment and great knowledge and made him ruler over his house and his kingdom.

C. {2 Chronicles 2:12}- Huram said moreover, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

D. The Lord rules all of the earth and you must praise Him and exalt Him. When praise goes up to God, He will send down blessings to the obedient.

D. {Psalm 47:7}- For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

5 You can do all things through Christ (God) who strengthens you

A. God gives power to the weak and to those of you who cannot fight for yourselves. Children are vulnerable, and He protects them. You must honor God, and He will give you unspeakable power to complete everything that you need to do.

A. {Isaiah 40:29-31} He gives power to the faint and to them that have no might, He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.

B. Make the Lord proud of you, that He is pleased that you are honoring His word and spreading the gospel to the unbelievers. However, He never promised that you would not have problems and adversity, but He has promised to give you unshakable strength to withstand the storms of life. He will be your protector. He will give you joy in your heart.

B. {Colossians 1:10-11} That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.

C. God had the power to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt. He will also give you unbelievable strength to conquer all of your turmoil.

C. {Numbers 23:22} God brought them out of Egypt. He hath as it were the strength of a unicorn.

D. Put your faith in God, and again, He will give you unshakable strength and power that this world has never seen.

D. {2 Samuel 22:33} God is my strength and power: and He makes my way perfect.

6 He will make you new and help you grow in the spirit

A. Read your Bible and learn the word of the Lord. The Bible will help you gain a closer relationship with God. He is the ruler of all the earth.

A. {2 Peter 3:18}-Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

B. God will protect you against your enemies, but you must trust and believe that He's got your back. The Bible is your shield and protection. It will cover you as an umbrella does when it is raining. If you don't use an umbrella, you won't be covered. The word of God works in the same way. You must be an example to the people who purposely sin and do not ask for redemption.

For we all sin as we were born sinners, but you don't want to keep repeating sin because God gets angry with us. Also, you don't want to walk in pride.

B. {Ephesians 4:13-17}-Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, makes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind.

7 God is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
8 Although you can't see him, God will never leave you alone

A. God gave Adam a helper (Eve) because it is better to be equally yoked with someone that believes in your dreams and aspirations in certain situations.

A. {Genesis 2:18} - The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

B. God is no respecter of persons. He loves us all the same. If you are lonely, He will never leave you alone through the Spirit of the Holy Ghost.

B. {Numbers 11:17} - I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.

C. God will never leave you alone, even when humans leave you or forsake you, the Lord will comfort you.

C. {John 14:18} - I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

9 God will save you from sin and eternal death

A. God asked Joseph to forgive his brothers for their wrongdoing. His love is so great, he gives you the power to forgive, and it saves you from eternal damnation.

A. {Genesis 50:17}-This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.' Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father." When their message came to him, Joseph wept.

B. God protected the children of Israel and did not allow the enemy's camp to harm them through his shield of protection.

B. {Numbers 18:32}-And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy things of the children of Israel, lest ye die.

C. The world's sin is responsible for hell, and God's grace leads to eternal life in heaven.

C. {Romans 5:21}-so that, just as sin exercised dominion in death, so grace might also exercise dominion through justification leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

D. There is a price to pay for your sin and rebellion, and that is death of a fiery hell. However, you can live in eternal heaven if you surrender to God.

D. {Romans 6:23}-For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

E. The Bible is daily instructions for living, all tried and true. It is filled with many that have a testimony of God's goodness.

E. {John 5:39}-Search the scriptures for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

10 We are living in a spiritual warfare

There is another world that exists among us that we cannot see. The spirits roam around to find a body to reside in. If you are not careful, you can be vulnerable to them. That is why you need the Lord, who is more powerful.

A. {Ephesians 6:12} - For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, against persons without bodies - the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world, and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.

B. We fight against spiritual principalities in high places. God gives us the power to fight the demons, warlocks, and witches in the spiritual realm.

B. {2 Corinthians 10:4} - For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

The Contenders
11 The lord is unlimited power

A. If you don't praise the Lord, then the rocks, water, and trees will cry out praises to Almighty God with such unlimited power.

A. {Revelations 19:6}-And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thundering, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.

B. I only let you live just to show you how great I am and that I can do all things.

B. {Exodus 9:16}-But this is why I have let you survive: to show you my power and to make my name resound throughout the earth.

C. Moses questioned God as he wanted to know why he was so angry with the children of Israel whom he delivered out of Egypt with much greatness and power.

C. {Exodus 32:11}-But Moses implored the Lord, his God, saying, "Why, O Lord, should your anger burn against your people, whom you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand?"

D. God will speak greatness over your life just because he can (only if you are obedient).

D. {Numbers 14:17}-And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying.
