Why should a person consider Christianity?—We are all broken and only God can bring wholeness!

“How can I help this person in my life really consider Christianity?” You may have asked this question.

I remember asking those very words as I spoke to the woman next to me on a flight to Perth. She had expressed a desire to talk about God, but no matter how I approached the conversation she kept just shutting me down and cutting me off. At first it seemed like she didn’t really want to talk. But every time I went back to my in-flight entertainment, she would interrupt it and start our conversation back up.

Why should a person consider Christianity? Because people who have encountered Christ and submitted their lives to him have been radically transformed.

Diana was caught up in a life of prostitution and drugs… but that was before she encountered Jesus Christ.

Diana struggled with her self-worth even before becoming a prostitute and used drugs in an attempt to numb the pain and shame associated with her lifestyle. She turned to God by attempting to “clean up her act” but she continued to struggle with addiction, falling to it time and time again.

But then something life-changing happened.

Why should a person consider Christianity? Because of Christianity’s central figure, Jesus Christ!

How often have we all heard a variation of “Jesus was a good person with fantastic morals and he was a great teacher, but that’s all he was.”? It’s a very common thought for a lot of people, isn’t it? People realise that Jesus was real, but they are not willing to accept his claims that he is God. They can see that the values he taught are really good values that we should all aspire to, but don’t want to engage in the other truths that he teaches such as “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

However, when you look at the life of Jesus and the claims he makes, he could not be a good person if a good person and a great teacher was all he was. So, when someone talks to you and says expresses those doubts about Jesus being God, you could ask if they have heard of the 4 L’s.

Why should a person consider Christianity? — because you can know God personally

Before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Saviour, I used to go to church just for the sake of fulfilling a chore or go with the flow of tradition. I would sing worship songs as if they were just regular songs. It was just purely ritual and empty. Almost every time God’s word was taught, I could hardly understand the message because all I had in my mind was either the food that I was going to eat or the places I would go after the mass. I knew Jesus as the man at the cross, but other than that, everything about him did not make sense to me. His name did not create a significant impact in my life back then. His name was one of the many names of the saints and apostles that I would call every time a problem or a tragedy would arrive in my life. Prayer was just my spare tyre and not my steering wheel. I didn’t understand what it meant to have a personal and authentic relationship with God. The void in my heart just kept growing as I knew there had to be something more than all those religious activities.
