It’s difficult for many to concatenate being Christian with enjoying life.
Somehow we imagine one cannot be Christian and sexy, Christian and metrosexual, Christian and gourmand.
When we are forced to make a choice, we either choose active Christianity and boring lives or passive Christianity and epicurean living.
I am so alive. I am culturally exposed and enjoy experiences. But, there is a centredness to me. Because God lives within me, he modulates everything I do.
God actively wants to know me. He’s interested in the music I listen to, whether it’s Davido or Hillsong. He wants to know what I’m drinking, whether it’s water or whiskey. He wants to know why I patronise the brands that I do. He’s interested in the countries I visit. He’s very intellectual and actively contributes to conversations. He has a perspective and an opinion. He freely dispenses advice. He “pokenoses” into my business and I do the same to his. God is not just interested in my problems and prayer requests. He wants to know me intimately and completely. That’s what a relationship is like and I have a relationship with God.
God is my life source. I enjoy the life I have. I’m not hiding parts of me. I’m a package deal.Somehow we imagine one cannot be Christian and sexy, Christian and metrosexual, Christian and gourmand.
