I guess I always wanted to know and learn more about God and the Bible but never knew how to go about it or where to start… such a massive book, where do you begin?
I was brought up in a Christian household and went to church every Sunday, became a Sunday school teacher in my teens and always felt I needed and wanted to know more about the Bible.
After some trials in my life and having a child ask me the question “What do you think happens when you die?” I started looking into what I actually believe. Who is my God? I know I believe in Him but what is that big book really all about?
I started reading my Bible from the beginning and couldn’t make much sense of it. I had lots of questions and was determined to find the answers. I’d heard about Christadelphians and turned up at a Bible class one night by myself, I didn’t know anyone and I felt a bit out of place. The first thing I learnt was to read the Bible for myself! I had A4 pages of questions and people to ask to try and figure out what the Bible actually teaches. After looking into it for about a year and becoming confident in what I believed, going to my nearest Christadelphian church and reading my Bible most days, I got baptised into the saving name of Jesus Christ and started my journey to the Kingdom of God.
My family have different beliefs to me and sometimes this can make life difficult but that’s why this verse means a lot to me and I try to remember it every day.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
