I was raised by Christian parents and attended both a Christian church and school as a child, but did not understand Christianity until after I became an atheist and investigated the true meaning of Christianity as an adult. It is Christ living in us – “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).
It is Christ living in us that enables us to comprehend God’s deep love for us and be filled with all the fullness of God –
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19
Christianity is not dull, it is not lifeless; it is exciting and full of life! Christianity comes to each of us through the power of Christ’s resurrection from the dead –
“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” Romans 1:3-4
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” Philippians 3:10
