try to keep true to your word of the gospel; you show others by spreading the words of the gospel with genuine meaning. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalms 119:105). This verse simply says that if you spread the gospel to a non-believer that your words 5
can be the light to helping them find God’s plan. For myself, I have the best of intentions. I try to hold higher standards and strive to be a solid example for myself, family, friends, and even the people who do not really know me. I know there will always be times where I fall, but I will try and sink into my faith for the helping hand that I may need. I know that my calling is to be a teacher, so I can make a difference in a student’s lives and enrich the community where I teach. I ask myself daily, “what more can I do to contribute to the society that I live in?” Somedays I feel like I fall short, but everyday is a new day to start fresh, ask for forgiveness, and in good faith try again. Conclusion The Christian world view shows us that man was originally created in God’s image, and if we believe in God, ask Jesus for forgiveness of our sins, and show love and compassion for our fellow man we can be restored to God’s image and be granted eternal life. God gave us the universe, and all living and nonliving creations. It was his immense love for all did he then create humankind. After the slip into temptation Adam and Eve forced Gods hand to bring upon sin to our humanity. Even after the fall that occurred in the Garden of Eden God loved us unconditionally and sent to Earth his only son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, because God granted us his only living son, he gave us faith through the restoration because of our humanity and in the end, we will reunite with God in Heavens Kingdom. The only way we can receive salvation is through our faith and forgiveness. Believing that God is the almighty power and a forgiving God to utterly understand and absorb Christianity. 6
