Hubography of My Faith Based Hubs: A Faith Walk
Why I'm making this hubography of my faith based hubs?
I'm making this hubgraphy of my faith based lenses because first of all I am a born again Christian (or believer in Jesus Christ) and feel the need to share my faith in any way possible, but secondly, because I know there are others of like precious faith in the Hubpages community who would probably like to know where to find other hubs relating to the Christian faith, and thirdly because I believe that faith should play a predominant part in all of our lives, first for salvation and second for our daily living. These are not Bible-study lenses per-SE, although some might contain snatches of Bible study on a particular passage. These are all lenses relating to faith and the exercise of it in one way or another.
It's actually more of a hubography of the Christian life.
My religious or spiritual background - The basis for my faith
I was raised in a Christian home, but at an early age came to realize I had to trust Jesus for myself and so, after a neighborhood Bible study, I prayed with the teacher to accept Christ. My parents then explained to me that although salvation is a free gift, our lives should be lived in thankfulness and appreciation for it. But in my teenage years, I got away from it and began to doubt my eternal salvation, until one day I came to grips with it and realized I had to make sure, so I went forward in church and prayed for God to save me or make me sure of my salvation and I felt a real sense of His peace, and have never doubted since, but have been living in thankfulness with a living faith. It doesn't mean I'm perfect. I still sin, but when I do, the Holy Spirit convicts me and I confess it and am forgiven (IJohn 1:9).
First, check out my hub on the truthfulness of Christianity in general:
- Apologetics (Knowing how to defend the Faith)
Peter tells us in I Peter 3:15 to be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks of the reason for our hope.
What about the righteousness of god?
- The Righteousness of God
A knowledge of God's righteousness is both somewhat needful in obtaining our eternal salvation and also a comfort in our trials and testings and every day living.
You may want to check out this one on faith for dying:
- Faith For Dying
I'm making this page about faith for dying because a recent death in my own family has driven home the reality of the subject and caused me to be even more concerned than I was before that many people don't have faith for dying. I know that death is.
The basis of our faith:
- 7 Last Words of Jesus on the Cross
With Good Friday fast approaching, I'm making this page about the 7 last words* of Jesus on the cross because, as the last words of a dying person are usually counted as important, the 7 last words (or sayings) of Jesus on the cross-- (and...
- The Mercy and Grace of God
I'm making this page about the mercy and grace of God so we can more fully appreciate the mercy and grace of God and what they mean to us both for salvation and for daily living. I'm also making this page in order to point out the differences...
And to be sure you are going to heaven:
- Are You Going To Heaven?
I'm making this page about going to heaven (eternal salvation) first of all because it is of vital importance due to the uncertainty of life (We never know what can happen [a car accident, a heart attack, etc.] and we are not promised another...
Do you know what are the basics of Christian growth?
- The Basics of Christian Growth
When you first become accept Christ through faith, you are born again, & just as a baby needs to grow, so you need to grow in your Spiritual life. The things I list the bare basics-
Faith for Daily Living
- Faith for daily living
The same faith which assures our eternal destiny should characterize the life of every believer--that just as we have trusted Him for salvation, we should trust Him for every area of out lives.
Sometimes our faith is tried:
- The trial of your faith
I'm making this lens about the trial of your faith first of all as a follow up lens to my lens on "Faith For Daily Living", but mainly because in life, the faith that we have is often put to the test either by Satan, as with Job, or circumstances...
Take it a step further:
- Christian Growth2: Meditation
After the basics, a further step in Christian growth is meditation. Christian meditation concentrates on the Bible, the Word of God.
What about the Holy Spirit?
- What is The Baptism with the Holy Spirit?
There is a lot of confusion on the subject of the Holy Spirit in general and the Baptism with the Holy Spirit in particular in Christendom today. But Chuck Smith clears it up in his book.
My personal experience and relationship with the Holy Spirit
I did have an experience of the fullness of the Holy Spirit at one point later on in my life. That was a time in my life when I really needed a spiritual boost I did feel a closeness to the Lord that I haven't felt since. Now it is not nearly as constant as it was then, but I still do feel His presence at various times now.
