the glory of God...

Note:
If reading about Christianity discomforts you, this talks about it but its relevant to life in general as well so its up to you -.-




















*A Christian is one who believes that Jesus died for our sins and that believing in Jesus leads to eternal life...

Tonight I met a Christian in SHUM -a special man. His name is Adrian, a middle-aged man with long hair and a body that showed his age and experience...

The way he talked, the light in his eyes, the movement and vigour and his energy I had never seen in a person... It wasnt dull, monotonous speech, he talked with his whole being and nothing less.

As I am trying not to forget my conversation with him by typing this up my memory is failing me so before I forget everything (which I will) let me say what I learnt:

-dont ask other people about their past...
this can bring back bad memories, to which the other will be defensive...

-treat other people as though they are better...
they know many things you dont, and you can learn and encourage them...

-Make your speech easy to understand...
Talking about Jesus with jargon increases the distances us from God...

-There is God and he can help you...
We rely on Jesus for heaven, but ask Jesus for help in times of need...

-There is the Devil and he schemes against you...
The Devil is smart and works and schemes to bring people away from God- God is superior and protects us from him; we must not ignore the Devil but be wary.. when the need comes, pray to God!

-One to one...
You talk to people one at a time, through relationships...

-Live to bring glory to God...
As Adrian did... I saw the glory of God in the way he lived his life, and am encouraged to live in this way too...
