So let’s look at WHY I became a Christadelphian. There was a period in my life when I felt there was no need for God in my life and that life was going really well. Little did I see that my life was spiralling in the wrong direction and when I reached rock bottom God was the rock at the bottom. I prayed to God for strength and direction for my life.
I had been searching for the “right” Christian community to join for the longest time and had visited many church groups who were all really welcoming but just did appear to be the right fit for me. I was looking for a group who had a faith based on the bible and who endeavoured to live life that way too. Having been brought up in a Christadelphian home and explored many religious ideas I eventually came back to the Christadelphian faith as I believe that this is the truth as it is taught in the Bible. I have chosen to accept this belief and way of life in serving God until Jesus returns.
Many people when I share my faith say that they have never heard of the Christadelphians and does it not concern me that they are not well known? I am not concerned that Christadelphians are not a large group, relative to other religious denominations, because what I believe is more important and it is that we follow Jesus in truth and sincerity and I believe that Christadelphians embrace the Word of God in truth and in sincerity
I belong to a group of Bible believers who share a common understanding of the Bible and have made a commitment to Jesus Christ, through baptism into His name and a shared belief of the promises contained in the Bible.
To me being a Christian also means I surrender to God’s will, and the greatest thing about being a Christian is being in a renewed friendship with God. Reading and studying are part of my daily life. It is as though the Bible is a collection of personal books and letters, all from God to me. I have learned to trust and believe in God loving Him with all my heart and putting His will before everything else in life.
What are the anchors to base my life on you may ask? Let’s look at the fruits of the spirit in the book of Galatians chapter 5 and verses 22 and 23:
- But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23. gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
In my next blog I will explain to you why I believe what I do. If you have any questions please reach out to chat.
