Does God Exist?

I am a Christian.  I put my faith in Jesus Christ for salvation when I was about 13 years old if I remember correctly.  However, even before that, I believed a God existed. As a matter of fact, he was my imaginary friend as a kid so to speak.  I used to stay up late at night during the summer months and talk to this invisible being we call God.  I would tell him what was on my mind or just talk to him.  I never really questioned the existence of God during until I was older and experienced the world for myself. It has always seemed reasonable to me that a god existed who created everything.  I just wasn’t sure who he was later in my life due to the many questions I had regarding reconciling who I thought he was and how the world around me was, especially my own life.

The purpose of this article is to share my belief in the existence of God.  Why do I believe God exists.  This article was written for the benefit (I hope) for a gentleman that I encountered on Facebook who stated he did not believe in God and such belief is a demonstration of brainwashing so to speak.  I know that my belief in God is not a blind faith, but rather, one that was established by evidence.  Now I do recognize that someone may look at the same evidence and come to a different conclusion.  However, I hope that this article would at the very least get a person to reconsider their atheism and that they would first come to believe that God does exists and then to know what he did for us through Jesus Christ.

Reaping Where You Have Not Sown

I have noticed something very significant over the last eight years or so at the time of this writing. Simply put, people expect to reap where they have not sown.  That’s like going to the bank trying to make a withdrawal when you have not made any deposits. We would say that is silly, but Christians do it all the time.  They expect God to swoop down and rescue them from their dilemma when they have never taken the time to invest in their own spiritual wellbeing and to learn what God has already made available to them for that situation.

In this lesson, I am going to present to you the importance of sowing the word of God into your own heart so that when situations arise, good or bad, you will be able to act according to the word of God and with wisdom.  We are going to use the parable of the sower and the seed as a launching point for this topic as well as other parables that highlight the importance of the word of God from Matthew Chapter 13.
