From the moment I got saved 19 years ago, my life, my experiences, everything changed and was different.
The night when I decided to give my life to God, the battle started for me. I felt different and I became aware. I was aware of a tug and war. I was aware of being swayed in two different directions. I became aware that many of the decisions I made was wrong and sinful. I also became aware that I had a temper and after getting baptized, it was ‘trigger happy’. That means, I lost my temper a lot and even more people couldn’t play with me. God also heightened within me the fact that it was wrong and he helped me to break how I reacted; well I did move from full out aggression to passive aggressive. I do internally combust at times, and even with 19 years I am still learning how to balance my reaction.
Since I have given my life to Jesus Christ and living a Christian Life, I have had varied experiences from hell and been the best and worst person you could know. I have been tempted of almost everything under the sun and then some. I have been persecuted, hurt, stolen from, lied to, hated, disrespected, and even backslidden. But, I am still standing and I am reconnected with God.
When you become spiritually aware in Christ, you are a different creature. You are both a servant of God and a soldier in battle. Whether you want to or not, those are your roles. To ignore any, is to almost seal your fate, in ignorance with the devil.
The devil doesn’t fight fair, and he will try to wound you and take you out even before you are suited in God’s armour. You are also mandated to serve in God’s kingdom, in various ways; big or small. So if you disobey that requirement, you will set yourself up for a fall.
Becoming a Christian. One of the best decisions you can make, but you must be wise and act responsibly when you become spiritually aware.
