Even though I went to church, I did not know the real meaning of being a Christian until . . . 

What does being a Christian mean?  What do I do to be a Christian?

When I was growing up, I was raised going to church.  The problem was, I was so little that I didnít know the true meaning of being a Christian.  I though if I just went to church, that was being a Christian.  But there was more to it than that. 

I had always felt like going to church was something I had to do.  It was never really a delight.  I would tell people I was a Christian, but nothing changed.  I didnít love or care for others, and I lied a lot.

I started praying to God about everything, and my life started to change.  One thing I noticed was that I was more loving and caring towards others. I was lying less than I did before.  I completely stopped listening to bad music and instead of that listened to Christian music.  Then, I was constantly praying and reading the Bible every day.

Now, I can finally say that I am a Christian and that I know what it takes.  I am thirteen years old, almost fourteen, and I am so happy that I am a nice person.  I owe all my thanks to God.

God can change your life.  Just pray about it.  All it takes is one step at a time, and He will change your life.  God doesnít want one part of you; He wants the whole entire you.
