I would like to share with you, about the most important thing in my life- my religion. I was born in a Christian family. However, I don’t really understand Christianity. Many elders tell me how good this religion is, and how they are helped by God in many ways. Still, I didn’t believe, because I can’t see how Christianity helps. I used to be very self-directed, looking for all kind of goods to make myself happy, but that kind of happiness just won’t last long and they can’t satisfy me.
My parents asked me to attend church services when studying in Dong Hwa University. Therefore, I joined “Manna fellowship”. At first, it was fun joining them in Manna, because they always play around in Hualien. However, after a period of time, I found the seniors in my fellowship that they are extremely faithful and faithful with this religion. This made me start thinking about the significance of Christianity. I want and I tried to understand and experience Christianity. Thank God, I was given an opportunity to I join a Christianity camp. The teacher in the camp made me reflect myself, to ask for God’s forgiveness as I have neglected for God’s commands to us and didn’t take this religion seriously. I asked God for help thereafter. Thankfully, after the camp, I realized, Christianity is all about love. God loves me and offers a wonderful plan for my life.
But why didn’t I experience that? I think that is because I didn’t trust Him enough and I didn’t rely on Him. According to Bible, this is sin. Until now, I deeply know that, I am a sinner.
But what can I do? I can’t possibly reach God’s standard. That’s why, Jesus came to this world, and help us to rebuilt our relationship with God. And He became the bridge, making the connection between God and us.
Finally, I accept Jesus in my life, and I know Him will guide me the unknown future, and face my problem in my life. I find after that I have many changes.
Above are two circles, representing two kinds of life. I chose the live out a Christ- centered life. How about you?
In this religion, I learnt about how to love, everything is possible through God, and also understanding the plan of my future from God. He has changed my personality from the easily offended guy to gentle guy, more forgiving, and He let me know my life should not be self-directed! Lastly, I would like to share a short video clip with you.
