I recall how people have used this line for Christians a lot:
“You’re going to church only to check out the hot chicks/dudes there, aren’t you?”
… Well, at least they have the impression that all Christians are hot/good-looking…
I just gotta say how wrong this mentality is. ESPECIALLY among the Christians. If you’re coming to church, or any other Christian gathering/fellowship for the primary purpose of hooking up with someone… You’re going to the wrong place, yo.
On the other hand… If you’re going to church to look for LOVE… Well, you chose the right place to be!
You know why?
Cos’ you’re gonna find the ultimate Lover there. God himself. The Love that sacrificed His Son for you. The Love that is willing to forgive your sins, past, present and future. The Love that can accept your inadequacies and insecurities, because He made you and you are made complete in Christ. The Love that surpasses knowledge that I can’t even explain it to do it justice.
I just gotta say how much I dislike the idea of people going for Christian conferences, conventions and camps just to meet the one – mainly cos’ I’m guilty of it myself. Yeah, you’ll probably meet THE MOST God-fearing, God-loving people you’ve ever met while you’re there but that should be something like an “additional benefit” that comes from these things. The greatest gain should be that of discovering more and more of God for yourself!
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. ~ John 15:13
I’m glad that many get it right in this respect. :)
p.s I know I’m not the best person to be saying these things… That’s why I’m only posting it here. Hehe. :P
