Running head: Gospel EssentialsIntroductionIn today’s era people are constantly facing the difficulties of coming to terms with their Christian faith. It is hard to get to know and completely comprehend the truth about God and all of his many creations. Jesus sacrificed everything for us, and it is apparent in everyone’s lives. We all have to deal with the struggle to determine our sense of purpose regarding humanity, and what they can do to fully and completely live out God’s plan for them. Due to Jesus’s unconditional love for children, we finally realize that his sacrifice was nothing less than loving and compassionate. People eventually get closer to finding out their sole purpose of life, by taking the time to explore the words of the Bible. The Bible provides us with the knowledge to properly decipher the word of God. As Christians we will never be able to completely comprehend the complex nature that God has created. We are able to develop our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through prayer, attending church, and reading the Bible. Because of these things, we are able to know ourselves on a deeper more spiritual level better, and be form a strong connection with Jesus. GodGod can be described in many different ways. God is: wisdom, love, patient, kind, compassionate, empowering, protective, provider, reliable, powerful, mighty, faithful, and most importantly real. God’s wisdom is displayed a plethora of times in the Bible. For example, in Genesis 6, the story of Noah. “God saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals’...but Noah found favor in the eyes of God.” (Genesis 6:5-8). Noah and his family were saved during 2

Opening your heart to God and accepting him and the walk of life, you are predisposed to more wisdom. “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will begiven to him.” (James 1:5). Another attribute of God is mighty. God is mighty because he is everlasting. In Hebrews 13:8, he says he is “the same yesterday today and tomorrow.”
