….Now you’ve found Jesus?” This was what a man from the church asked me recently.
I would not say I’ve exactly ‘found Jesus’. I don’t really like those phrases. I mean, I’ve always known about Jesus but I am now getting to know more about his life, work and what he means to Christians, what his death meant. And I can’t say I’ve been ‘saved’ either. Nah, I’m plodding on, reading, researching, singing, praying, going to church, getting involved, and loving it.
But happier? No-one promised happiness. Certainly not God. Life is filled with suffering. As Pastor 3 said, “It’s not going to be easy. But God offers buffers against suffering.” I’d like to think those buffers include other people. Good people, that is. Not complete twonks (translation: idiots).
I would say I feel more supported. And intrigued.
