CHRISTIAN PERSUASION

Happy Wednesday Guys! It’s been too long. Let’s just get into it, shall we?

For a long time I had no idea what to post. Things either seemed too spiritual, and required more than necessary typing or they just weren’t ‘it’… You know? Other days, I had the ideas at like 3am and although I’d be awake, I’d either feel too lazy to write or too caught up in a design to even remember to write it down. Then there’s the classic, “oh I’ll remember this”. Let me tell you this, you won’t remember! Then there’s the being so broke you can feel it in your bones and you try and faith it till you make it but things just don’t seem to be working out and somehow, it’s affecting every single part of your life because you’re not giving every other part of your life as much attention as you are your being broke.

My journey has been quite an exciting one. This blog is a year! We turn 2 in February, 2019, yet I read stuff from other blogs and just start thinking “Just what do I think I’m doing? This person writes so amazing.” “Wow this is stuff of legend. Wow…. Wow… wow” Then whatever little vim I had in myself, disappears. Just like that!

So tonight, you might be out there wondering what happened along the way after all these weeks and well I may sit here and type that I have an answer but I don’t.

I just got an idea from some scripture I was meditating on and instead of telling myself I’ll remember It, I decided to work on it instead. So here we are with a three paragraphed intro and still no idea what I’m gonna share with you.

A few days ago, I saw an argument about how illogical we sound as Christians and some guy came up with a rebuttal saying that the laurels of Christianity rest on faith and so yes, it’s illogical.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m still at the point where I’m questioning certain things. Certain concepts are still very vague to me and I want to be able to understand the rituals of church service to fully bask in it. When I do my crazy dance during praises, I have the understanding that He’s enthroned on our praises and that if I begin to list the things He’s done for me, it’ll take the rest of my life to get it done with. By which time He’d have done other amazing things so I’d just have to continue with that and then it’ll take another rest of my life and well… You get the drift.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, instead of being riddled by my numerous questions, here’s what fears the scripture has allayed. That yes, there’s God. Because frankly my life has been characterized by unexplainable event after unexplainable event and quite rightly I doubt I have some sort of superpower or have some sort of hold over the forces of nature. Oh wait, I do – the love of God.

So like Wizkid passionately sang, ‘I just can’t explain.’

I can’t explain why I’m Christian or why I believe in Jesus or any other numerous questions you might have. And like I admonish a lot of you who read this blog, GET TO KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF. Because, frankly, there’s no better way around this. You can’t rely on what your pastor knows or what you’ve heard on the streets. True it’ll influence you, but for me, I am persuaded that neither death, nor life nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, can separate me from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord. (Rom. 8:39) And that’s my Christian persuasion. What’s yours?

Thanks for making it thus far. Let’s meet in the comment section then, shall we?
