Why am I a Christian?

Two unborn twins were having a conversation in the womb (For the sake of my metaphor, we’ll say it’s possible):

One twin says to the other, “You know, for the most part, I’m sure enjoying life here. I get the nutrients I need every day and I’m relatively safe and comfortable.”

The other twin replies. “And yet there is so much more to life than our time here! We will soon enter into a new world, filled with incredible experiences…”

“Absurd.” the first twin replies. “How will we survive without the umbilical cord? Don’t you realize that life ends after delivery!”

“Brother, ninth months here is nothing compared to the years we will live out there in the real world.  We will be able to taste, and feel, and smell. We will finally see light fully displayed.”

“How can you be so sure of yourself? I see no evidence for any of that.”

“Look around you! We’ve been so intricately created and formed. Our time here is preparing us for what is to come.”

“Created…prepared? By who? We’re the only ones that exist in here!”

“By mother! She surrounds us, she protects us, she provides for us, she loves us. Right now, it’s in her that we live!”

“I’m sorry, but I can’t accept anything you’re saying. It’s unreasonable. Life in here may be rough and frustrating at times, but I’m making the most of it. And that’s what makes me happy.”

“Don’t live for what makes you happy brother, live for what is true, because that will last forever. How much better it is to live life in here with hope of a better one in the future! We will get to see mother…how exciting is that!”

I don’t know whether or not you believe in God. I don’t know how your relationship is with Him. Maybe you believed in Him the past but something caused you to leave your faith. Maybe you are currently following another religion, in hopes that you will find satisfaction or truth. Most likely you are like most people- unsure of whether God exists and not really knowing how to find purpose in life.

But this is the good news.

  1. God created you.
  2. He loves you and desires to have a personal relationship with you and spend eternity with you.
  3. However, sin separates us from having that relationship with God.
  4. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who is equal to God, to live a sinless life on earth in the form of a human.
  5. Jesus Christ died on a cross to take the punishment we would have received for our sin.
  6. He was buried for three days and rose from the dead on the third day.
  7. Now we have an opportunity to trust in Jesus and accept God’s offer of eternal life.

Christianity is not a religion. It’s a relationship.

I’ve only lived slightly over a decade and a half on this earth (To think that some people have lived five times longer than me….) I still have so much more to learn and so much more to experience here…God willing. I do know for sure though that God exists and that living life here on earth as a Christian makes life so much more fulfilling and satisfying. I am able to look at love, truth, knowledge, people, suffering, and pain from a perspective I never thought possible. And I live knowing with certainty that a better, eternal life awaits me. In heaven.

 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.

(Psalm 19:1-4)

 This is a lot to take in, I know.
