We are all believers. We all believe something. Everybody puts their faith in something or someone. Everybody has a set of beliefs by which they run their lives, even if they don’t know it. It shapes every decision and every action.
As a Christian I believe that what Jesus taught is the right way to live. I choose to follow Jesus and His teachings of forgiveness, love, generosity, grace, mercy, eternal life, etc.
There are times I wished it were easier. It’s not complicated; it’s just not easy. But for me it’s the only choice.
I prefer to follow Someone who knows what it’s like to live on this earth and who left His spirit, if not His body, behind to guide me. I prefer to follow Someone who still lives and whom I believe I will meet someday.
I feel sorry for anyone who has not decided who or what they follow. For without a conscious decision, they will follow anything or anybody, OR everything and everybody.
