The Truth About Being A Christian

I have seen some common misconceptions lately about being a Christian. Some people seem to have the idea that all you do is say a prayer, confess your sins, and life then becomes grand. I want to correct that impression.

Being a Christian is great...but it doesn't make life perfect. I'm fairly sure that everyone knows to be saved you must first believe in God, then you must confess your sins. That part is common knowledge. But it's the part after that, the part I feel most people don't understand.

Once you have given your heart to God, things don't exactly get easier...in fact, things get harder. Because once you give your heart to God, most people come under spiritual attack. Satan tries to stop you from giving up your sinful ways, in fact you may be tempted to think that you were never saved at all. That is what he wants you to think.

But once you face the storm and keep doing what you know is right, follow God, read the Bible, find a church, give up your sinful habits....your life begins to change, slowly, one baby step at a time. While that change isn't always easy...it is always worth it.

I have faced so many changes in my life, since I got serious about giving my heart to the Lord. I started reading and listening to the Word...at first it was the only change. But then slowly God begin working on my heart, and I began to see changes in my tastes. My secular music, which I was crazy about before, and had a huge collection...it had to go. Replaced with Contemporary Christian music. My books which I have always loved, and read pretty much anything I wanted....slowly I became more selective. Over time the horror, was given away, the romance switched to Inspirational Romance, and anything overly questionable was gone.

Then more changes and more over time...until my life has changed. I guess my main point is that I don't want others believing that becoming a Christian is so easy that life gets fantastic immediately afterward. It doesn't go so easy...but it is more than worth the struggle. I want people to know that it is a walk, and that it is doable. I hate that people think it is easy, and then when they run into trouble they give up on the faith, because no one told them about the challenges.

The more we are challenged the more our faith grows and the closer we learn to lean on God.
