“How we define God, is, how we will live our lives!”
As ELCA Lutherans, we define God as love (1 John 4:4b). We believe God’s love was best seen through the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of our Lord and Savior Jesus, The Christ. We also believe God’s love is seen throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. We also believe God’s love is for all of creation. Through this faith formation blog, we will delve into our faith beliefs as ELCA Lutherans to help nurture us in our definition of God. Like Martin Luther, I feel there is a great need for us all to know more about our faith beliefs. Then, as we grow into our ELCA faith beliefs, the other purpose for this blog is to equip us to live the faith God gives us, to live our definition of God, to love all as God does.
If you have specific questions about the Bible (specifically the hard-to-understand verse or stories), faith, and living our lives of faith, you can, anonymously if you want, add your comments below. I am looking forward to this time of nurturing and growth in the faith God gives us.
