I’ve been a really bad Christian lately. Not in the regard that I’ve been not believing/sinning a lot, but the fact I just haven’t had time for it. Of a Tuesday I’ve been too busy/lazy to go to the school Christian group, on a Friday night I’ve been too busy to go to youth group and we’ve been away almost every Sunday so before today, the last time I went to church was at the start of February. I do read my bible every night though, and last night I got to Phillipians, which is quite possibly my favourite book in the bible, and the following verses stood out at me:
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. 2:3-4
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe. 2:14-15
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 4:4-7
Those verses just really speak to me, and are some of my all time favourites (along with 1Timothy 4:12 and John 3:16) and are just generally special. There is another one, but my computer was being stupid and wouldn’t paste it. If you want to look it up, it’s Phillipians 4:8-9.
Next term, I’m going to get back into it. I don’t have much on, so I can go to youth group, go to church, go to ISCF. Christianity is so important to me, and it makes me sad that I don’t make enough time for it. If you’re religious, how do you make time for God?
