"The Power of Jesus's Followers"

I considered myself a believer, but I didn't grow up in the church. I was raised to go to church Easter and Mother's day and maybe go a couple of times throughout the year. I grew up with a lot of love in my household and family, and I always knew that God is Love.

 I knew Jesus was real and to love him and to do right by other people, but never did I understand or value his instructions until I had some Christian college roommates.

My roommates were friendly and humorous, but I had never met any girls so young be so "churchy." At times they would get on my nerves because they wouldn't party, drink, or smoke. 

They wouldn't even use profanity, and that would drive me crazy because they would substitute curse words with "f-word" or "b-word." Also, in conversations we had, their opinions were one-sided, which at the time I felt was invalid and overthinking. And their delivery of certain topics wasn't very nice. Nonetheless, we remained very cordial and friendly, but deep down, I was ready to graduate and leave them.

They Strengthened My Christian Knowledge

What I can say today is I am very blessed that I had them as my roommates. I learned so much from them much later in life. I can even say God used them as a vessel to strengthen my Christian knowledge about "letting my yes be yes, and my no, be no." 

They also taught me about tithes and offering, which at the time I used to think was unnecessary and a scam, but ten years later, I began to tithe, and God keeps showing me his abundant provision.    My roommates also taught about the spiritual danger of sororities and fraternities in addition to the power of prayer. The Word says, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved- you and all the people in your household."

The Power of Jesus's Followers

 I can testify that this is true, even though I wasn't my roommates' family, I learned so much from them as God used their lives to plant stronger Christian seeds in mine. To this day, we are still friends, and I consider them to be people I can rely on if I ever need Christian guidance. 

I am thankful God blessed me with the grace to live with them and to be open to their way of life even though at the time it was very different from mine. Jesus is amazing, and I am so grateful for his grace and his power and his Word.

The God of Hope

Wishing and hoping in people, events, and circumstances is not real hope. Real hope springs from absolute faith in God and His promises. 

Rom 15:13: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
