Over the years I have talked to a lot of people about my faith in Christ. Some just don’t understand it.
Some think following Christ is about obeying a set of rules. When in reality God gives us boundaries to keep us safe. The Bible says we follow a narrow road for our own good.
Some think it is about living a good live to find God’s acceptance and salvation. When in reality is is about accepting what Jesus has done for us in dying for us on the cross.
Some think this life is all there is and we are born, live and die. When in reality the Bible says we are eternal beings who will spend eternity with Christ or without Him.
Often the people I speak to have never read the Bible. So this is where I start them. I encourage them to read the Bible. I encourage them to read either Luke or John and take note of Jesus’ words that are normally in red letters.
When they read the Bible they start to see the real Jesus, not how the world paints Him. And when they see the real Jesus, they see it is more about what He has done for us. This is when they start to understand.
Today I would encourage you to start with the Bible. Read about Jesus. Find out who He is and what He has done. It is my prayer that this will help you to find true understanding.
It you don’t have a Bible you can find one at www.biblegateway.com or look for the YouVersion Bible app in your app store. They are both free to use.
