The choice to believe, not to believe, or to ridicule other people for their beliefs, is yours. We were all given free will, therefore the decision about our beliefs are all on our own. While our parents may have chosen our religion when they baptize us at an early age, we can change our religion later on or decide to become a devout catholic, if that is what we prefer.
As children of God, we should live by His teachings and His examples. However, that is not always how things go. There are many of us who have embraced atheism. They do not believe in God at all. Atheists choose not to believe because they have failed to see or experience or appreciate God’s presence in their lives. We all have different journeys and life and the journey they took on might have kept them from believing in God’s grace. Regardless of these, it is important to keep in mind that faith in God is important.
You are your beliefs
Your beliefs will change you. It will help hone you as a person. If you do not believe there is a supreme being who created all of us, then you might not follow His teachings, most of which are geared towards doing good and loving your family, your neighbors, your friends, and even your enemies. If you do not have faith, what path are you taking? Will that path lead to happiness and salvation? Will that path lead your soul to peace? Or will it simply make you question your existence, and the existence of the people around you? If you are a non-believer, then how would you explain how we came to be? Will science suffice in explaining our existence on this earth?
More importantly, how would you explain all the positive things are happening in your life? How were you able to overcome the challenges in your life? Who helped you become the person you are today? Who gave you your family and your loved ones? Who alone has the power to take them away when the right time comes?
God has a plan
God has a plan for each and everyone of us. There is a reason why He does things that way He does. There is a reason behind everything that is happening in our lives. We may not know what that plan is right now but that plans will be revealed to us in God’s perfect time. This is why we need to have faith in God while we wait for the promise of his salvation.
Walking in God’s light
It’s never too late to have faith in God. You still have time to believe in God’s teachings and experience his love and light. There are some things that are inexplicable. Faith is among these things. It is difficult at times to believe in the things that we cannot see and touch. But that is the beauty and the miracle of our faith.
The more we believe in God, the more blessed we will become.
