Why am I Christian?That’s a really normal question I hear from my friends and even family members.I want to write about this because this is a big part of me and God is the person I love to talk about, over all the themes a conversation can be about I never get tired of talking about Him and what He has done and is doing in my life. I’ll try to do a short list of the reasons why I choose to be Christian:D
1. 1. 1. I’m always loved:
Whenever I feel unhappy, alone, sad, depressed and even ugly, I will always know that someone loves me. And I can find that great love when I read the bible, the most of people says: Yeah ofc! No way, all the Christians do read the bible and says they find love with simple/stupid words that are written by a human. How’s that possible? How can you feel loved when the person who loved you died on a cross? Is that even possible? Isn’t it gross?! Let me answer:
Yes, there are simple words in the bible, but when you read them they become special if you can break the code, the meaning of these ‘’simple’’words, that’s what makes the more than just ‘’simple’’ words. How you break the code? THAT’S the simple thing about this, you make those words to yours, and you make the chapter to a letter from a person who loves you and you live the words you’re reading, then you feel complete. When it comes to a word from the Old Testament then you learn something of the mistakes those persons has done or you learn how to react in a bad/good situation.
So when I feel unhappy I can teach myself how to be happy in difficult times by reading a story or a promise that’s written in the bible.
2. 2. 2. I find peace:
Everyone says: you find peace when you do something you like and that means in everything!
Let me tell you that everything can be drugs, alcohol, tv games or even your phone. I can relate that you can be relaxed by some joints or some shots,but how do feel the day after you took these joints or shots? Do you really feel the same happiness and pleasure you feel while you’re doing it? NO! Hah, I’ve never done drugs or get drunk but I know those who do and literally don’t feel the same the day after. You may think, I don’t do drugs or that, I find peace when I’m playing video games, and okay do you really enjoy kill people on a screen? And you say we dumb for reading a bible that’s written by a human.
Peace isn’t about feeling it for second or some hours, it’s about feeling it every day without needing to smoke herb, kill some cute characters or drink until you ‘’don’t feel’’ any pain.
3. 3. 3. I am forgiven and I can forgive:
Sometime we can feel like a little bite of poop, like literally you feel like it at least once in your entire life. Well I’ve felt like it many times,but hey, I always find a reason to be happy even if my worries and feelings aren’t on top. You also may feel unforgiven, like you have made so many mistakes that you don’t deserve to be forgiven and there’s when God come into the story. We don’t even think about it, but he has forgotten all our ‘’mistakes’’,even called sins. I like to call it mistakes because the most of us says that all the wrong things we do are mistakes and I’m here to tell you that those mistakes are forgiven, even though you think it’s impossible because you did it on purpose you are forgiven.
When I think about that grace its impossible not to choose being Christian,like say whaaat?! Is this for real, can you be forgiven for free without any costs or conditions? Eh, yes you can if you believe.
I can also forgive and when I do it is it like I’m free, fearless and kind. And back again to the peace part, you really feel peaceful after you’ve said: Blaba I forgive you for you having hurt me in Jesus name. That’s a HUGE GOOD FEELING!
Does anyone do it for you? Like forgive you without any problem? NO! The only one who does it at first and already has done it is God, say what?! YES!!!So that’s something I wouldn’t change for anything.
Treat others like you want to be treated reminds me of a verse- How do you expect God to forgive you when you won’t forgive your neighbor.
I think I wrote, almost, the most important reasons why I decided to be christian. Some say that it is crazy, hard, hurtful and meaningless but let me tell you that I rather be called stupid, racist by humans that also makes ‘’mistakes’’ like me than being judged by God.
Everyone who ever asked this question: here’s my answer to you.
For the ones who don’t know me: This is me and my lovely thought and relationship status, because I have a relationship with God everyday :D
