If you’re not a Christian, you might think that Christianity is just like any other religion. You might think that religion is a bunch of rules created by people to keep society under control.
“All religions are alike,” you might say.
But if you ask the Christian, we would tell you differently. We would tell you the story of our old life.
We had a hole in our heart that made us feel like our life was meaningless and had no purpose.
We tried to fill that hole with money, sex, drugs, careers, relationships, but none of those things gave us the fulfillment we were looking for.
We tried to change our habits but no matter how hard we tried, we always fell short of perfection. We were stuck in bondage repeating the same wrongs over and over again.
When faced with a choice to tell the truth or to lie, we often lied and took the easy way out.
We hated people who made us extremely angry or that rubbed us the wrong away.
Moreover, we were angry with the world!
We tried to make material things and relationships the #1 priority in our life to get rid of that sinking feeling only to be disappointed time and time again.
Then something happened…
We met Someone special that changed EVERYTHING.
We met Jesus and our lives were forever changed in the best possible way.
We were able to change our habits for the better. Before we were doing it in our own strength and we were failing. Now we were succeeding through Jesus’ strength.
We had love in our hearts for others like we’ve never experienced before. We told the truth and had a desire to please God.
We were free from sin (wrong things that we all do) and were able to have victory in our lives.
Sound too good to be true, just plain weird, or feelin’ kind of skeptical? Or maybe you feel that Christianity is a crutch to lean on for weak people? I know, I felt that way too before.
If you aren’t a Christian, what’s your biggest objection to becoming one? Don’t be afraid to share your objection, I won’t judge you. But figuring out why you are here and where you are going is life’s biggest question that DEMANDS an answer.
If you are a Christian, please give a brief testimony of what Jesus has done in your life. If you love Jesus and He has changed your life, then don’t be ashamed to share with the world why they should surrender their life to Him.
