Sharing the Gospel

Since it was always implied, but never really explicitly stated, I say it now:

I am a Christian.

I wonder what makes me one, though… Is the fact that I worship God, love Jesus and go to church that makes me one? At one time the answer was pretty much simple. Recieve Jesus into your heart and you become a Christian. Now if you ask me, I would hesitate to give you an answer.

There are times when I wonder whether I am a Christian by virtue of being brought up as such? Or is it because I serve in church and CF that makes me one? Am I a Christian by choice? Or am I a Christian because I believe in a creed?

Do I doubt whether God exists. Yes, sometimes. Do I sin? Yes, of course! So? Can I concieve of backsliding? I don’t know. Honestly.

I am ending my service in EXCO. I am going to leave school in one years time. I will launching on my career within the next five years. Very soon I will have to battle convictions that are antithetical to the way I have been brought up. Very soon I will face worldviews and lifestyles that I never thought possible. Very soon, I am leaving my innocence behind.

I have one year, to really know what I mean when I say that I am a Christian. And it better be able to withstand the crunch of real life.

    How is your relationship with your Creator?

    …and the Lover of your Soul?

    Do you pray?

    Do you abide in Him?

    Do you study His Word?

    The world is waiting to devour anyone who is not wearing the armor of God. It will crush you if you are not prepared for it.

    Hi there!

    To me, and from what I’ve read in the Bible itself, how you were raised, or the fact that you attend church doesn’t make you a Christian. It is the act of committing your life to Jesus, and asking him to live inside your heart.
    This may sound naive or silly to some, but I wholeheartedly believe this.
    I will admit that I too have times where I question everyone and everything, especially God. I always end up being drawn back to the simple truths of my faith.
    Hope you have a good weekend!
