EmmDev 2015-05-13 [Apostle's Creed] Concluding Thoughts 1

Concluding Thoughts 1

(Apologies that this is late - I absentmindedly sent it to the old robot instead of via our new mail system.)

he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians1:6
Our verse talks about the fact that God places His Spirit in our hearts and journeys with us to make us more and more like Jesus.

Rich Mullins, a well-known Christian songwriter, talked about the Creed in a unique way. Please read his song below and think about the bits that I've emphasised.

CREED
Rich Mullins

I believe in God the Father almighty
Maker of Heaven and Maker of Earth
And in Jesus Christ
His only begotten Son, our Lord
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
Born of the virgin Mary
Suffered under Pontius Pilate
He was crucified and dead and buried

Chorus:
And I believe that what I believe
Is what makes me what I am
I did not make it, no it is making me

It is the very truth of God and not
The invention of any man

I believe that He who suffered
Was Crucified, buried and dead
He descended into hell and
On the third day he rose again
He ascended into Heaven where
He sits at God's mighty right hand
I believe that He's returning to
Judge the quick and the dead
Of the sons of men

Repeat chorus

I believe in God the Father almighty
Maker of Heaven and Maker of Earth
And in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord
I believe in the Holy Spirit
One Holy Church, the communion of Saints,
The forgiveness of sins
I believe in the resurrection
I believe in a life that never ends

Repeat chorus
