I have been saved for 20 years, and I thought I was doing everything I was supposed to be doing as a Christian (actually, more like not doing any of the things I wasn’t supposed to be doing as a Christian.) I was only taught that Christians “don’t do this” and “don’t do that,” but never that there was a lot more to it. I was never taught that Jesus was a loving servant to all He came in contact with.
It wasn’t until April of 2015 that I started realizing I wasn’t a true follower of Christ. I was just a fan – probably even categorized as a fair weather fan. But God started working through convictions, and the men that he placed in my path to do life with.
