8 words that take on a whole new meaning when you give your life to Christ


1. Gospel.

You mean...like...the genre?


 Or like Jesus being crucified on a cross to pay for each and every one of our sins.
Then rising again so that we do no have to die, but can live eternally.


2. Pray.



I didn't always pray, but when I did I either:

1. needed something
2. was about to go to sleep
3. needed something
4. was about to eat or
5. needed something

So things could get pretty awkward.


Now, it's just a conversation with a God I have an actual relationship with. 
We can talk about everything. We can talk about nothing.

It never ends weird.


3. Grace

Being gentle and delicate and leaving lip stick stains on your glass.


Realizing He didn't have to do this for you.


4. Court

As in: I refuse to pay another camera ticket, I'm taking this to court.
I was hardly over the speed limit.


Now commonly known as, what you do with someone after you realize you like them, but before you get married.

See also: boyfriends without benefits.


5 & 6. Old Testament


Thou shall not readeth.
 

 
Where you turn to find some of the sweetest gems in the bible, a ton of wisdom and understanding of the New Testament.

 

7. Easter

Going to church once a year to show off your super fly first day of spring outfit.


 
 Realizing Jesus actually conquered the grave.

 
8. Love
 
When you stay in an unhealthy relationship no matter what they put you through.
 
 
 
Laying down your life for someone else.
 
 
 
 
But we have the mind of Christ.
|1 Corinthians 2:16|

  1. I lol'd at the first description of Easter. It's very true. All of these terms take on a whole new meaning when you view your walk with God as a relationship vs a religion. :)
