No regret, No apologies

No regret, No apologies

When I say I’m a christian, I mean I’m a follower of Jesus, not of culture or tradition, or church, or style – but of Jesus. The Jesus I follow precedes every culture, and he supersedes every culture.
When I say I’m a christian, I mean I was helpless in myself. I have made a whole lot of mistakes, mess ups, struggles and hurts in my past but I found a safe place in Jesus.
I don’t define myself by my story but by His story. The story of a loving Saviour who died for me and was raised back to life. His story is more than enough for my story
When I say I’m a christian, I’m not apologetic or miserable about it. I’ve got the greatest privilege on earth: a right standing with the almighty God through my faith in Jesus.
When I say I’m a christian, I’m speaking confidently about the direction my life has been set in, not so much as the situations I sometimes flip in and out of. My effort is constantly in a direction of Jesus. Sometimes in fail in following Jesus, but I will never fail to follow Jesus. I will show up one more day, I read the Bible. I pray. I don’t always feel like, but I keep doing it – it is what Christians do.
When I say I’m a christian, I’m quick to remember that I’m not who I used to be. On a daily basis, God is changing me from the inside out as I give myself to Him. I’m not who I used to be, I’m not!
When I say I’m a christian, I do not exist in abstract. I’ve got family I love to be with, I’ve got brothers and sisters. I’m a member of God’s kingdom. I’m connected to God’s family all over the world.
When I say I’m a christian, I’m planted in a local church. I’m. A big part of the life of my church. I serve. I belong. I tithe and committedly and generously. I love the people.
I’m a christian, I follow Jesus. No apologies, no regret.
