I have been living a double life as a Christian since the age that I could truly understand Christianity. I was raised in a christian home so I had always been taught that getting saved was the right thing to do. I got saved as an eight year old, not really knowing exactly what I was getting into. I was simply going through the motions. As I went through school no one would have known that I was a Christian. My Christian side was never shown outside of church and I felt the need for that to change.
I was living my double life as a Christian through high school, not always making the best decesions. One day I realized that this isn’t the way God would want me to be acting. I’m supposed to be an example of Jesus Christ as a Christian and lead people to Him and there was no way that could be accomplished with my worldly ways. After realizing this I decided to rededicate my life to the Lord with a complete understanding of Him and everything that He does for me.
After I received salvation from the Lord my perspective on life completely changed. I have turned my whole life around. My old ways and bad decisions have gone away because I now do what I believe Jesus would want me to do. In my time of need, I now turn to God in prayer before turning to anything or anyone else. Without the Lord in my life, I would still be making the same mistakes in my life that I was before, but now I have God on my side to guide me down the right path.
