For the first day I found myself questioning why I was there. I got frustrated that I wasn’t receiving the same attitude that I was giving. I also didn’t like everything they were talking about since it was circumstances I’ve already discovered and overcome. I believe we find ourselves asking a lot of questions; why are there bad people, why is there death, why is the world so evil, and etc.. the answer is sin.
Today I understood why God placed me here. There was questions that I needed to be answered and Mr. Tony, our surprise speaker, answered them.
One of the questions I had on my mind was, why do I find myself sinning or have the desire to sin? It’s because we love to sin, we enjoy the adrenaline and at times more than we love God. Even though I already knew this in my heart hearing it made it more real. God has adopted us into His family and the way we honor this is to love Him.
Changing your heart will change your life. The restless feeling that we have in our heart is because we are made to love God. When we aren’t all in we desire to love and be loved. Once you change your heart you’re perspective on life changes. How you react to everything determines what you believe and what is in your heart.
No historian denies that Jesus existed, they just have different perspectives on who He was. When I heard this I wondered how so many people deny who Jesus is. If there’s so much evidence on Him living, the miracles He has performed, and how He rose from the dead how are there so many atheists in the world.
That was my next big question, and he answered it with this, “it’s not that they do not believe it’s that they do not want to believe.” Some people think it’s easy not to believe when it’s so easy to believe. What I mean by that is we simply have to invite God in our heart and then we’ve been saved, it seems unbelievable since we expect a challenge. Some don’t believe out of anger or just don’t care enough about life to find out.
God desires our love and wants our love so badly that He made it very easy for us to recieve it. We’ve already earned His love we just have to live like it.
