A while ago i was put in a position where i had to explain my Christianity to a non-christian, and being my first time, it didnt go so well.. i was mostly disturbed with my answer when he asked whyy i chose to be christian. I told him that it was to reach eternal life.
Although that is our objective as Christians, it shouldn't be the reason we choose to follow the Lord. We follow Him because we LOVE Him, because He gave Himself up for our sins.
Eversince I told my answer, I could not figure out why LOVE wasn't the first thing that came to mind.. and today God opened my eyes.
I had a rather selfish approach to things.. My relationship with God is based on mee, the reason I am Christian is so that I dont end up in eternal suffering. With the knew knowledge that i had gained.. there was another very important question that needed an answer..
Do i REALLY love God with myy alll ??
I searched & searched but I coudn't find an answer.. How do I know that i really LOVEE God & that that's the reason I obey His word ???
