Humans were created in the image of God and created to worship Him. God is the creator of the universe and He created humanity to rule over his creations on earth. Humans were called to “be fruitful and multiply” Genesis 1:28. The root cause of human problems is sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23.

I grew up in the church but, did not truly understand the bible or Christian way of living until I was an adult. I also had grown to believe that I did not need people so when life got hard instead of turning to my church for support I turned inward and tried to solve things. One day in church this bible verse was louder than the rest “for where two or more are gathered in in my name, there am I with them” Mathew 18:20. I knew that was God talking to be. I sought out the pastor’s wife, asked for prayer and joined a women’s bible study. My life has not been the same and I realize my life is not my own. People tell me how different I am or there is something different about you. I am not ashamed to tell people I am a Christian, I talk about Him on social media, and I have bible verses in my cube at work and the license plate frame of my car. Jesus changed my life.
Conclusion
God is the reason why we exist and his grace is sufficient for all of humanity if they chose to believe. Jesus was sent to die for our sins including the sinners who hung on the crosses with Him. The Christian faith does not mean living a perfect life but a life pleasing to God. We are called to have faith as a mustard seed. If we confess our sins we are saved by grace and can look forward to eternal life with our father in heaven. The best thing I ever done was come to Christ and rededicate my life to Christ. He has forgiven me
