This newsletter, I chose to focus on something that has bothered me for quite some time. The topic I want to discuss is the misrepresentation of Christians in modern society. Non-believers tend to use the term “perfect” when speaking about Christians and it strikes a chord. The pedestal we are set on is an unrealistic interpretation of what it means to be a Christian. Firstly, we are men and women prone to sin. GOD created prayer as a way to see our way back to him after the fall of man, thus quelling out sin nature. The other way that is used to quench our sin nature is to read the Word of GOD. We lost the word when the first man Adam sinned. We have to fill ourselves up by taking in the word, and added to prayer it becomes even more powerful.
We all need to practice the word. The behavior that humans of today exhibit can never change unless we practice what we read. For example, if you want to learn to play the piano you have to practice. The training of your fingers will be difficult, but if you practice at it, you can play beautiful songs and even compose some of your own. The point I am trying to make is this, Christians are still people. We just chose GOD’s path, that’s all. Everything that comes after being saved is work, just like everything else. Living as close to the word as you can, the best way you can, that is the lesson here. The only thing you need is the right tools, because if we were “perfect” we wouldn’t need GOD.
