Many cultures, Many faiths, Many points of view and opinions etc. I was not FORCED as a child by parents, or teachers, or ‘anyone’ in AUTHORITY to conform to any particular faith or religion. I was however, given choices,. As I grew up and knew more of this wonderful and diverse world I made a choice.
I have chosen to follow a PERSON, not a doctrine, not a religion, not a thought structure but first of all a PERSON. Jesus Christ is the Person I follow and I have chosen to live His Way and by His Rules. His Way is LOVE for all peoples, all national identities and all religions BUT………..His Way is a narrow way. This narrow way has a handbook for life and the Bible is the Handbook I follow. Life with Him and In Him has led and is leading me on an incredible life journey. I would desire that others too (particularly all my family) would follow Him. Ultimately, the choice of whole-hearted following is one each individual must make. Choosing to follow Him is a whole of life choice. ‘Picking up your personal cross in life and following the narrow Way’ is not easy BUT God the Holy Spirit Who dwell within (again a free choice) helps you live life in ABUNDANCE AND FULLNESS.
Blessings to you and yours.
