Tonight, at work, one of my co-workers asked me, "What made you believe in God?"
I replied that this wasn't always so, that not all that long ago I was a rather rude and blunt atheist. I told him that the Bible tells me three things (at least):
- All Christians are called to tell others about God.
- Those who seek Him will find Him.
- Faith is a gift from God.
"One day I met a Christian who decided to tell me what he believed. For once, I was cordial about it and listened openly. From that day on, I thought about what he told me and one day, I simply believed it."
I told him that the way I figured it, God has given me the gift of faith and though I have many times rejected what God has said and rebelled against it so that I could be regarded as a terrible Christian (if I could be identified as one at all), I have always come back to a simple faith.
So I guess that's why I believe. Maybe one day you'll believe too. What made you believe in God? If you don't believe in God, what makes you not believe?
